Additional carriages added to Blue Mountains Line services

Posted: Tuesday 12 June 2007

CityRail is pleased to advise customers that additional carriages have been added to the 4.23pm Central to Mt Victoria as well as 11 other Blue Mountains services.

CityRail has also extended the popular 5.39pm Chips' service to Lithgow.

As part of CityRail's commitment to provide additional capacity and services to our customers, extra carriages have been added to Blue Mountains services.

The improving reliability of services since the introduction of the new timetable in 2005/2006 has seen 136,000 new customers choose to travel with CityRail each week.

This additional capacity is one part of our long term plan to meet that increasing demand. Other initiatives will include new services being provided across the network as Sydney's latest state-of-the-art Oscar trains are progressively delivered throughout 2007 and 2008.

Those services which have had capacity increased from four carriages to six include:
