Refurbish Train Carriages To Save Money For City Rail

 A commuter that claims there's lots of improvements needed to be made with City Rail. Nimal from Wooodcroft, catches City Rail trains to the City and return from Doonside train station, Monday to Fridays.

His main concern is that we need more trains, especially after the train we were catching to Doonside, Mount Druitt (from Parramatta 4.17pm) had ample seating. Yet he claims the next train that heads out west would be overcrowded. 

Train cleanliness - this mostly happens on old trains servicing the Western Line and providing newer trains would solve this problem. If the NSW Government doesn't have the money to provide newer trains then the older train carriages should be refurbished.

Providing newer trains would also solve the last issue for Nimal as he says there are a lot of trains carriages that have no heating and provide cold air in winter!

Editors Notes: Refurbished train carriages - great idea! This could save a lot of money and at the same time update technology with the  electrical parts of the carriage: electronic signs, emergency help points, heating/cooling and proper lighting.

What do you think about refurbishing old trains compared to purchasing new ones?
