Sydney Trains


Sydney's commuter network is very impressive. The system uses all double-decker trains of various types. Trains run very frequent with local and express services. Most of the lines converge at Central Station.

Then there is the City Circle. Some of the commuter lines enter basically a city center subway to circulate passengers closer to jobs and attractions. The City circle opened in sections starting in 1926, with the loop being completed in 1958 with the opening of Circular Quay station. Teh system was designed for more lines then it currently handles. The line to Bondi Junction only use one stop of the circle. The North Sydney lines use 2 stops of the circle. Three of the fine stations I love. Circular Quay for its views of the harbour. St. James with is history displays, and was designed for 4 tracks but only 2 trackways are used today. Then there is museum whcih is very art deco with no columns. A must visit!
