Re: NSW Railway Observations 2020

Was on A65 last night on Olympic Park to Penrith Service with the graffitied end on the Eastern end and now I've caught the Early Morning Penrith to City service and the Graffitied end of A65 is trailing on the western end basically my question is where do you turn an A set around??

Re: Supersized "When lights flash" signs on NSW buses and black surroundibg on school lights

They appear to be on newish deliveries of custom cb80s with state transit also and maybe the endeavours at Glendenning with busways but don't think the B8 Optimus at Glendenning have them.

Re: NSW Railway Observations 2020

There is a drill rig at the St Marys town centre side of the station I'm assuming it's with regards to work with the metro line potentially the quadrupling of the St Mary's Penrith Western Line which was rumoured two years ago or the other possible idea is the replacement of the dangerous uneven sta...

D2 and D102 took atleast 15 minutes to attach to each other at Mt Druitt Platform 2 this evening then proceeded to head towards Penrith on the City bound line quite an unusual sight. D2 was leading Penrith bound.

Re: Private Bus Observations 2020

Busways 1287 is the first of the fleet to have fully working next stop displays. There is no audio announcements. The tripview data seemed to be affected though as there seemed to be a minutes lag between the bus and it's actual location. The Penrith fleet with next stop displays are 1141 1228-34 12...
