I think I have asked this before but I forgot. If "T" stands for Transit Link then what does F stand for?
The F stands for Fast, it has different stopping arrangements to make the trip faster for outer suburbs residents as The Phonj said.

I'm probably wrong but it certainly feels like an M44 route

300 without a doubt. Almost three hours to complete, and about 65km. The J1 was 2 hours end to end (in 2011) and about 50km.

The M44 timetable shows it takes an hour and 21 minutes during the day - longer at peak times, shorter at night.

Some depots so large now that they have more than 100 straight shifts on a weekday. So silver shifts and track shifts now have a different second digit to manage that. At Morphettville 6600 would be Saturday silver, 6700 Saturday track, 6800 Sunday silver, 6900 Sunday track.

And 6000,6100 weekday silver.
6200,6300 weekday track.
6400 broken weekday silver.
6500 broken weekday track.
So weekends/public holidays got bumped to 66,67,68,69.

Does one driver do the whole route or is there a changeover somewhere?

One driver whole route, sometimes with a trip before or after the 300.

There has been no change to G10 Timetables-refer Adelaide Metro website-July 5th changes for this route was only to show stop renumbering along Goodwood Road.-Same frequency has been in place for quite some time.

Why do our metropolitan trains sway so much? I have never experienced it as bad in Melbourne or Sydney
Next station is Victoria Square. Change here for all trains.

Yeah some would be there but can't see the ones doing woodcroft college school run or the goolwa/ victor to Adelaide run that leaves colonnades to Goolwa around 7 am come from Pooraka so there must be a depot somewhere down south for them
