  • Mandurah Train Line

    Launching the new Mandurah Line services

    Effective: Monday 24 December 2007

    On Sunday 23 December 2007, the new Mandurah Line will be officially opened, with timetabled services commencing on Monday 24 December 2007.

    To ensure the continued integration of Transperth services, it is required to alter bus service routes and timetables in the surrounding suburbs that feed into the new Mandurah Line. This will ensure you can catch a train from your bus and avoid the inconvenience of waiting for long periods of time.

    Services: Sunday 23 December 2007
    On Sunday 23 December 2007, to celebrate the opening of the new Mandurah Line, Transperth is providing free travel on all bus, train and ferry services for the day.

    Train services on the new Mandurah Line will be open to the public from 11.37am (from Mandurah) and 11.31am (from Perth Underground) with stations other than Mandurah along the line open from 11.15am. Services will operate on a 15 minute frequency, with last services from Perth Underground leaving at 5.00pm and from Mandurah at 6.22pm. Normal timetabled services will be operating on all other train lines.

    Passengers are asked to note that bus services on this day will be operating along existing routes and to current timetables and not on the new routes and timetables.
    Finally.

    Anyone else want to race the first train to Mandurah?

          Trains are supposed to be doing 130 in service. One that I *cough* passed the other day was going around 140-ish.

          I was, of course, on a private track, adjacent to the freeway at the time.

                    I vaguely remember reading a label in the cabin of a german train that said (in German) "Top Speed: 238km/h".

                    Dorrington would have a fit

                        They've got ones that go faster than that I think...the MagLev train in Shanghai does like 400kh/h or something ridiculous.

                          My speedo reads about 3-5 k's fast at 100, it's hard to tell when you speedo needle has a small "wiggle". In case you ask, I met a friendly copper who willingly allowed me the luxury of a speedo check on the freeway, without giving me a ticket.

                          When I was running alonside the train, I was indicating about 148-ish, on that private track of course.

                            Fat Pat- To my understanding, the speedo displays a couple of kms slower due to its own accuracy percentage. Though, when in the cage I have different speeds on my Speedo and GPS after 60. 60 sits on, by 100 on speedo it's 96-97 on GPS.

                              A lot of car manufacturers "trim" the speed as you get faster, a psycological method of lowering the speed limit OR reducing speeding fines - a lot of people will sit 5-8 k's over the (indicated) limit, and they are in fact only doing the speed limit
