Hornsby access trial gets go-ahead
Train crew have had trouble accessing the trains at stabling yards over many years. After investigations by the RTBU, Rolling Stock Design (RSD) was approached to find a solution that would not interfere with the driver’s train preparation operations.
As a result of a feasibility study and stakeholder consultations, a fixed-landing solution has been developed and will be trialled at Hornsby Up-Stabling Yard in the New Year to test reliability and usability. If the trial is successful the solution will be rolled out across the network.
