**** the bogans, I don't want to share a train with those hicks either.
In fact I think all the bogans from the Armadale-Thornlie-Cannington corridoor should take the bus so that I don't have to sit next to them when I take the train.

Those Scania DABs as in the second pic have been gone from the CATs for a while. Volgren Merc O500LEs have replaced them, they are the same as what Transperth is replacing the normal route fleet with.

Tsk tsk tsk Transperth, you might be doing a heck of a lot for public transportation in Perth, but you really need to hire someone to correct your grammar!

What next

Where to now I wonder- Perhaps some small extensions- Byford- Swan View.
Or what about Bunbury Interurban?
I did hear somewhere that they reserved some land for a possible future extension to Bunbury.
Cost wise I assume a single track with a few passing loops at Stations would be sufficient.
Dare I say perhaps not even Electric to cut costs ect.
I see where in Germany they run these Hybred Railcars- They run Electric under the wires and then Diesel where the overhead stops.

ONWARD TO BUNBURY--- THEN BUSSTETON-- THEN FLINDERS BAY--
TRAINS USED TO GO EVEN THERE WAY BACK.

The government announced a while ago that it would be the armadale extension to Butler.

A cross-suburban line from Bayswater to Fremantle via Perth Airport, Belmont, Oats St, Curtin Uni and Booragoon would be cool. Any chance of that happening?

yes but that can be extended to Fremantle too, using the existing freight lines.
