Changes to XPT Services this weekend
CUSTOMERS who are preparing for a train journey on the Casino and Brisbane XPT Services this weekend are advised of changes in the schedule due to Sydney Trains trackwork between Epping and Hornsby.
NSW TrainLink Chief Executive Rob Mason said trains will not operate to the normal timetable from Sydney to Fassifern because of trackwork and as a result, changes have been made to the timetable to avoid train cancellations.
"Customers will need to allow for extra travel time and check the timetable as some trains will depart up to 15 minutes earlier from Sydney. An additional journey time of up to 20 minutes can also be expected," Mr Mason said.

- The 2.41pm Sydney to Brisbane XPT will depart Central earlier at 2.31pm
