RailCorp ceases to exist today as the remainder of the Transport Administration Amendment (Transport Entities) Act legislation comes into effect. It is now replaced by the Tranpsort Asset Holding Entity (TAHE).

And the game of musical chairs continues, now it is proposed to re-merge NSW TrainLink and Sydney Trains. If government put half as much effort into getting things done as they do with these endless restructures, what a great transport network we would have. All we ever end up is with the same people doing the same jobs with a bit of empire building along the way and some nice fat consultancy fees headed the way of some old mates.

"All Sydney Trains and NSW TrainLink frontline operations will continue as they are, with no change to the management of core service delivery responsibilities."
A lot will depend how far up the hierarchy the merger takes place. We don't need a return to the CityRail model where suburban quality rolling stock is "lipsticked" for outer-suburban and then intercity use.

This rumour has been doing the rounds for a couple of years now.
But as I am not a Herald subscriber I cant read the article. I used to have a way around it but I have lost it.

Opening the articles in incognito window is my workaround for article limits on SMH

Using your library card, you can access newspapers as an online resource viewing it as the print equivalent format on your screen

Some libraries, including your State Library can send a card/provide temporary card for you to access the resources immediately without ever needing to go to that library.
