Re: NSW Railway Observations 2019

Saw B16 stabled at Penrith yesterday morning when I was on a V Set from the Blue Mountains to the City. I wonder if this means some B Sets might be timetabled on the T1 from 28 April. Not officially. B sets are officially timetabled for Sector 2 (T2, 3, 8), but if one of them appears in Sector 3 (T...

Use of turboprops on international flights

Hi all I was recently checking Flightradar24 on my phone and seen that Todays Philippine Airlines flight from Brisbane to Manila is a Bombardier Dash 8 Q400. This flight is usually performed by an Airbus A321. The flight time is usually 7.5 hours for the 7,588km flight. The only other international ...

Re: Private Observations - July to December 2018

Spotted 3 stationlink buses on rail replacement duties at Blacktown this evening. Would have thought peak hour would’ve seen all available units on SL services.

Re: Private Observations - July to December 2018

There seems to be an issue in Blacktown where buses that go from the Bus Interchange over the bridge and into the Westpoint Bus Interchange are instead going to Sunnyholt rd and turning left into Third Ave and skipping Westpoint bus interchange.

Re: NSW Railway Observations - July to December 2018

They are connections for the Blue Mountains Line trains starting/terminating at Blacktown. I’m told some guards are allowing passengers for Penrith to stay on and opening the doors at Penrith. How would a regular passenger know the train even goes through Penrith? The H sets were displaying all the...

Gigantic mess tonight trying to get back from the NRL and once again there is zero communication about the massive service disruptions. Either everyone's just completely given up and gone home, or there's a complete lack of transparency, maybe even a cover up, on how bad it is tonight. Some lines h...

The route changes to T75 when the new timetables came out.

So Monday to Saturday, T75 is 2 direction running between rouse hill town centre and the village centre but on a Sunday it runs as a clockwise loop.

Obviously but nothing seems to ever change.

Not the first time this has happened and seems to be a constant issue since the changes.

I don’t know what happened with Busways today but their Blacktown services ontime running just got thrown out the door.

Bunch of monkeys driving for them today.
