Sydney is about to open part of a new railway line. Honoured and balloted guests have already been on trips. Today was guest day for wheelchair users.
Ha ha, said the carriage designers. This will fix the punters who moan about sitting backwards on a train.
The driverless train line runs from the north eastern suburb of Tallawong, kind of better known as Rouse Hill, to Chatswood and opens on the 26th of May. It will be extended to Bankstown in the south west via the city. It is quite fast for a suburban train and I have no doubt will be popular from day one. That it is incompatible with the rest of Sydney's train system may or may not be a problem in the future.
