Interchange stations

The NotchRail network has 23 interchange stations (branch junction stations and turnback stations do not count). Nine of the interchange stations are also major interchanges, which are stations which are at least three-way interchanges (Pete's Corner is a four-way interchange, Arenaville Airport, Troll House and Waratah Park are five-way interchanges and Central is an eleven-way interchange).

Ticketing

The NotchRail network uses the MyRail ticket system.

Ticket vending machines are a common sight around most NotchRail stations, except in some less populated or rural areas. However, the ticketing system is experimental at the moment, and in the future turnstiles at stations will be built.

Ticket prices

The MyRail system uses a flat-fare, which means that the ticket is on a fixed price, no matter how far a passenger travels along the line. However, prices differ between inner-city/suburban, intercity, regional and special lines. Ticket prices vary from $2.00 to $3.00 for inner-city and suburban lines, $4.50 to $5.00 for intercity, $6.00 for regional, and $1.50 to $7.50 for special lines.

Usage

Usage surveys have been conducted on the NotchRail network to help improve overcrowding. The results of a 2073 survey are shown here (incomplete).

NOTE: Average load percentages are calculated by Passengers/train ÷ Maximum (comfortable) train load. It is assumed that one car of a train can comfortably house 100 passengers and that when dealing with lines that operate different sets, the largest regularly operated set is used.

Sample stations are chosen by where the most passengers on a train is estimated to be at, choosing one station per line to sample trains from both directions. The sampling is conducted as the train arrives at the station, before the doors are opened and any passengers leave or enter the train.

For example, the Northern Line is at its most crowded during morning peak hour, after Penrith station. The measurement is therefore taken at Acacia Park (before any passengers move in or out of the train).

Line Measured at Avg. People/train Avg. load
City Circle Troll House 596 119%
North-South Line Troll House 470 96%
East-West Line Downtown 508 101%
Northern Line Acacia Park 522 104%
Lake Line Troll House 338 84%
Waratah Line Waratah Park 337 67%
Stuart Line Hespefield 329 82%
Western Line Airport Square 289 72%
Eastern Line Beresford 259 86%
Southern Line Olympic Stadium 502 100%
Castlebrook Line Revenge Parkour 578 116%
Pallet Line Waratah Park 596 119%
Wakehurst Line Colgalah 405 101%
Wakehurst Line Eysark Junction 273 68%
Green Ridges Line Bundanoon 348 87%
Achelous Line Bob's Farm 169 56%
Linford Line Moss Vale 345 59%
Metro Monorail Hawthorne Park 270 90%
Metro LightRail Ray Street 247 82%
Airport Express Central 416 139%

The most crowded line is the Airport Express line, with 139% load rate. The City Circle and Pallet Line are tied for second, with 119% load rate each.
The least crowded line is the Achelous Line, with 56% and the second least is the Linford Line, with a mere 59%. The Allandale Line is the least crowded surburban line (67%)

Information and safety

Signage

The signature NotchRail sign which is present at the entrances of almost every NotchRail station, has been in place since 2015 (with an update of the signs in 2052). Station name signs on the platforms are in English, Chinese and Indonesian. Some informational signage is also in all three languages. Since 2067, more effort has been made to make the NotchRail network (and Notchropolis and Craftia in general) more multi-lingual since the adoption of Mandarin and Bahasa Indonesia as official languages in 2059.

Yellow lines

In 2052 as part of Project Revolution, all stations had yellow lines installed at the edge of the platforms. This is to help prevent passengers from falling onto the tracks. Previously, only major stations had yellow lines on the platforms.

Short Platforms

Some stations have short platforms which only allow boarding or exiting from certain carriages (according to the set that normally serves the station/line).

Short platforms are assigned a rating. Ratings currently used are SPR2 (back 2 cars), SPF3 (front 3 cars), and SPM1 (middle car only).

Announcements and information systems

All trains have digital voice announcement (DVA) systems which activate announcements on information about the next station, etc. If the train has a guard, guards may also make announcements.

A majority of stations have destination indicator boards which show and update information about the next few trains.

Pickup, Setdown and Request stations

Some services will only pickup or setdown passengers at certain stations. This is to ensure passengers travelling to further away stations have enough room. Passengers should use the appropriate suburban service when applicable.

Some stations will only be stopped at if the guard is notified or on special event days. Below is a list of request only stations.

  • Clock Tower (stops on request or special events)
  • Haslem (stops on request on all stops services only)
  • Macdonald Racecourse (stops on request or on race days, occasional regular timetable stops)

Network map

An important part of NotchRail's identity is its network map. The map is a schematic diagram of the network which is based on the Sydney Trains map in Sydney, Australia. It is currently in its 7th major revision. See NotchRail Network Map for more information.

Projects

There have been many major projects in the history of NotchRail:

  • Project NotchRail (1992 - 1995), the original plan for the NotchRail system (before construction even finished), including the first line (City Line) and other inner city improvements. The name of NotchRail originates from this project.
  • Project Metro (2025 - 2033), a period of rapid construction of new lines despite the population growth slowing down slightly.
  • Project Revolution (2052 - 2054), a major modernisation of the Notchropolis Railway system, including renaming of the network to NotchRail, revamping of signage and decor, walls, lighting, accessibility and cleaning, new rollingstock and station naming scheme and site choice, and extensions of current lines.
  • Project Integration (2067 - 2070), extending current lines into the city (ie to Central) and providing more interchanges, since many NotchRail lines terminated on the outskirts of the city. Also upgraded were stations (repainted, added new decor, accessibility, etc.)
  • Project Refurbishment (2073 - 2075), refurbishing old lines and stations.

Future

Extensions and new lines

As the city of Notchropolis always expanding, new lines and stations are built for the convenience of trav

Metro Monorail extension

Plans have emerged for the Metro Monorail to be extended from Animal Farm to City Museum (interchange with Dellfield Line).

New stations

There are often plans for new stations on already-built lines, due to growing development or other reasons. This is different from extensions, however, which involve building new track.

This list consists of new stations under planning or under construction.

  • Northdale - between Kayumba and Silverdale on the McArthur Line
  • Orchard Park - between Cartwright and Castlebrook Airport on the Castlebrook Line
  • SAO Centre - between Courage Point and Moss Vale on the Riverview Line
