The sad thing is that for passengers per service kilometre, the Carlo line absolutely smashes some parts of the intercity network.

Which would make it on average 4 or 5 passengers for each station every hour, if my maths still holds up.

My god, there’s no way they weren’t running at a loss on the t6 line

Sydney Trains’ T6 Carlingford line to permanently close


Rail commuters in parts of western and northern Sydney will have a longer commute from January as one of the city’s oldest rail lines closes permanently.

It will be scrubbed off the map to make way for the construction of a new light rail project with passengers looking at years of rail replacement buses while they wait for the trams.

But most people shouldn’t have to fret — the doomed line is Sydney’s least used.

The T6 Carlingford line, which opened in 1888, will be axed on January 5, 2020. The route currently operates as a shuttle from Clyde in Sydney’s west where it connects to T1 Western line trains to the city.

Coloured dark blue on maps, the Carlingford line has around 500,000 annual users. That makes it Sydney’s least used, with three times fewer passengers than the T7 Olympic Park line. The big daddy of train lines is the T1 Western and North Shore that had 124 million people boarding last year.

DEAD LINE WALKING


The T6 has been a dead rail line walking ever since plans were mooted for a new light rail route fanning out from Parramatta.

The $2.4 billion Parramatta Light Rail will connect Westmead to Carlingford via the Parramatta CBD and Camellia with a two-way track spanning 12 kilometres. It’s expected to open in 2023, which means at least three years of replacement buses for commuters.

Future trams will use the T6 line track bed from north of Camellia to Carlingford with the stations becoming tram stops. The section from Clyde to Camellia, including Rosehill station — handy on race days — is likely to be abandoned. T1 trains will continue to serve Clyde.

“The new route 535 will keep customers moving between Carlingford and the Parramatta CBD while we build this important new transport mode for western Sydney,” Transport for NSW (TfNSW) co-ordinator general Marg Prendergast said

“Route 535 will run at least every 15 minutes in the busy periods of the day — a boost for customers who currently have just two train services per hour during the peak on the T6 Carlingford line.”

The axing of the T6 line will leave a gap in Sydney’s line numbering that goes from T1 to T9 for the Northern line. The T3 Bankstown line may also soon vanish as it subsumed by an extension to the Sydney Metro.

The interesting bit is the remark that the T3 designation may vanish.

Haven't been following but what will happen to the Bankstown - Lidcombe and Bankstown - Liverpool branches once the metro comes online? It can't become a single line by itself since they both lead to Bankstown.

I assume the remainder will still be called T3 and just run a shuttle along each branch so it’s unlikely the name T3 is going anywhere. T7 has just 2 stops.

How did Rosehill train station ever deal with the larger crowds at some of the horse racing carnivals?

They use the longer platform (where the photographer is standing) to the right for race specials. As you can see in the photo, it's a very wide platform.

It's still in use on Saturday race days during which they run a 15 minute frequency between Clyde and Rosehill, that is provided by having a second train (only a 4 car M set ) do some extra shuttles between those two points in between the regular 45 minutely Carlingford service.

Just stick bogies onto the underside of the platforms and buildings, and use them as rolling stock.
