TRAIN NETWORK NSW

Hello and welcome back......Trains have always been a passion of mine which started at a young age, mainly because my dad was a train driver.

C = Confirmed


  ******** UPDATE ********* = As stated above =  It has been comfired that 2018 will see the end of Analogue Train Communications as the entire network changes to the new 1.7 - 1.8ghz GSM-R Digital Train Radio System...

As far as I am aware, this network cannot be scanned......

  3. hi rod, you will need to purchase a digital scanner, something like the Uniden UBCD396xt scanner.... Most digital networks inc fire, ambulance, rail use the APCO P25 digital network.
    Andrews Communications (see link on right) or Ebay sells these scanners for around $380 - $500 (they used to be around $1000)
    Police use digital + encryption so you can no longer pick them up :(
    hope this helps..

  4. further TO THAT, 1.7 - 1.8GHZ IS OUTSIDE MANY SCANNER RANGES AND IS A GSM-R (similar to a Mobile phone network) TYPE NETWORK, SO SADLY, SCANNING RAIL WILL BE A THING OF THE PAST.....

  5. Was in Lithgow last week and heard comms on the main channel and on the shunting frequencies. How long will it be until they go digital?

    1. Wondering the same thing (but not complaining :)).. The infrastructure is in place with little metal poles and matching flat panel antennas scattered everywhere already in place and ready to go.
      I'm guessing 1. - they're waiting for a specific date to turn them on or 2. - They're already on but too complicated to use, maybe lack of training??
      I was listening to rail Maintenance on the weekend on 450.4125, so they are still using the old radios.. :)
