Real Time Train Loadings

From today a number of real time apps such as AnyTrip, NextThere, TripView and others  have been showing real time train loadings for selected services.

This allows customers to see how crowded each indivual carriage on a service is and how that is likely to affect loadings at other stops based on historical data. This will help to allow customers to choose a carriage that is less crowded. You can see the approximate number of seats available or if the carriage is standing room only.

This is currently only available for services run by “Waratah” A set and selected “Millennium” M set trains. The system works by using weight sensors installed in the train to make an estimate of the number of customers in the carriages at any one time.
