OUR rail plan for NSW

Patched

We all know that, heading into the NSW state election on Saturday, transport should be a concern for voters. For those who have good services, they should be concerned about future proofing them, for those with poor services, lobbying to get them, or keep what is left, and for those on train lines all over the state, we’d like better tracks that aren’t held together with Christmas stickytape, like my running repairs on this junction yesterday.

Goods trains are of course a huge player on the regional lines – with the issue of coal trains letting all alone the lines breathe the dust from uncovered coal cars being discussed regularly in the news, at least for those in Mayfield and Waratah where there’s no keeping those damn windowsills clean!

Watchful eye

Our astute shadow transport minister, and mini me, also independantly discovered the problems with making a new series of tunnels that are smaller than ALL of your current rolling stock so that you have one set of “metro” trains that means many more people standing for a 40 minute journey, and no potential to EVER run the higher capacity double-decker trains from the rest of the network.

Use the correct size of tunnel for your trains

Fortunately we were able to resolve this issue with a little re-jigging of the path after one incident with the bridge.

Grand plans

We’ve already completed the “under table rail link” and construction was underway to join the two fiddly loops with a shuttle train.

Tunnels

It appears also that Minister Ez is a fan of heavy rail where heavy rail should be, and no overlap with buses and cars – buses on the rail routes were quickly removed from service. Her or the highway – buses will not replace trains in her world.
