Re: Rail Observations - May 2016

Also noticed some door problems on K sets lately. Once, one of the doors would close normally, with the other door getting stuck and closing very fast after the other door had closed completely. A common problem with the doors is that it makes a banging sound on opening and makes loud hissing noise...

Re: Old Sydney Tram Remnants

I guess the well-laid concrete has been what has preserved the tracks ever since. But drainage has always been an issue (it's the old Waterloo Swamp after all) and it's inevitable that one day they will have to dig things up to work on the drains.

Re: Busways route 54

Looks like fixing a printing error.
The new TT shows the first Sunday service taking 28 minutes to get from Umina to Pearl Beach BECAUSE it goes via Patonga. The current omits Patonga but still has the running time for going via Patonga.

Easter Show Update:
An internal memo issued to rail staff indicates RAS staff also get transport for free if they show their ID. It is also acceptable if a customer presents a mobile sms as proof of purchase, is also allowed on transport.
