If a new rail service is going to be started the very least they can do is start with new rolling stock. The Silver Fern cars are ancient.

One of the three rail cars was refurbished in 2015.

If they really want to make this work I'd also look at having some trains terminate at Auckland Airport. A direct link from the bay and Hamilton to Auckland Airport would make this service more viable.

Agree... if not direct service, then perhaps a connecting service at Papakura or something.
