Photos – Final Day of the Carlingford Line

In the early hours of Sunday 5 January 2020, the Carlingford Line carried passengers for the last time, ahead of its decommissioning. The line is set to become part of the Parramatta Light Rail network in the future, but now now the line has carried its final passengers.

Transport NSW Blog was there on the day to document this historic occasion. Enjoy some photos from the final day of the Carlingford Line.
