Many thanks to the @TrainLinkWest crews, late-night bus drivers, and @nswpolice crews sorting out this mess.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Arrival at Wentworth Falls originally scheduled for 0010 AEDT is now looking like 0140 at the earliest.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

My theory has been confirmed. Bus Blacktown to St Marys, then the set stuck at St Marys for the remainder of the journey.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Waiting at the last signal before the platforms at Blacktown. I presume we need a manual train order to enter the occupied block.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Nah they’ve just taken 162S to Rooty Hill, and now they seem to have turned it off ‘cos it’s not reporting. pic.twitter.com/yrK2KpxZB1

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Whether this new conjoined will be going beyond Blacktown any time soon is yet to be determined.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

We’ve just been told that at Blacktown our 4-car will be coupled to the previous train to make an 8-car .

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

That’s interesting, 162S has gone past Blacktown now. pic.twitter.com/eJ1IBj67kC

Actually I don’t think anyone knows what’s going on. pic.twitter.com/353zbFcQtg

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

My guess is that they’ll bus us to St Marys, and then we’ll take the that’s stuck there. Maybe. Depends on crewing issues too.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

We’re on the move! To Blacktown. No information on what’ll happen when we get there.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

The local SydneyTrains runs are still being let through to Blacktown. Not sure whether to bother going to Blacktown..twitter.com/i/web/status/8…xg

@arcadiagt5 Yeah, but SydneyTrains / NSW TrainLink are rather good at organising replacement buses quickly.

I’m on run W593 at Westmead. Not as much showing ahead as I’d feared. pic.twitter.com/McoILodNGq

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Latest info is that we’ll be at Westmead at least another 15 minutes. I’m assuming it’ll be longer than that.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

@arcadiagt5 Not so much complicated as time consuming.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to arcadiagt5

That means all the signal block positions between Westmead and Blacktown are full, presumably. Lovely.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

We’ve now been told we’ll be held at Westmead until further notice. The situation at Mt Druitt is ongoing.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

We just our first on-train announcement. Nothing beyond what’s already in that alert. Guard says she knows nothing more yet.

@michaelneale No announcement on the train yet. The runs allegedly stopped at Blacktown and St Marys were last updated at 2201.
