Hi, guys it's me Driverwoods#1787 presenting my first Australian Route the Mandurah Line. A major rail route from Downtown Perth to Mandurah via Wellard & Rockingham. Contents Map Description Rolling stock DLC Service Pattern Pictures Videos Final Thoughts Map Description The Transperth Mandurah Line runs for 70.1 km (43.6 mi) the same length as the base game route Schnellfahrstrecke Köln-Aachen. Opened on December 23rd, 2007. Uses the same 25kv 50hz overhead contact system and 1.067m Cape Gauge Tracks as Queensland QR Brisbane Commuter Rail on the East Coast of Australia. Also, the entire Western Australia Cape Gauge Network including Perth Commuter Rail 1.067m tracks except for Pilbara Iron Ore Railways and the Sydney to Perth Railway which are Standard Gauge 1.435m. On the Transperth Map Mandurah Line is coloured Orange and a key feature of the Route is the Line Running on a Motorway Median Strip between Kwinana and Downtown Perth. Using the SR-2 Kwinana Freeway Corridor as planned by the Western Australia State Government in 1999. After Kwinana Station, the line uses a newly built railway corridor to its final stop at Mandurah via Wellard and Rockingham Stations. In 2023 Lakelands Station will open which is between Warnbro and Mandurah Terminal Station.

Final Thoughts The Transperth Mandurah Line is an Australian Route that must be added in to train simulator world 2. Since it's another Cape Gauge 1.067m route set in Australia this time the West Coast Indian Ocean Perth metro region if one wants another Brisbane Commuter Rail like 1.067m gauge action. Due to other Australian routes focusing on New South Wales Victoria and South Australia. If added to train simulator world 2 Mandurah Line will offer train simulator world 2 players a taste of Western Australia Metropolitan region commuter service. That includes rush hour service Perth underground platform to which you must continue onwards to Butler on the Joondalup Line Northern suburbs. Also at Perth Underground platforms you can also do a turn around scenario to which you operate a K Stopping Pattern from Rockingham then become a W Stopping Pattern to cockburn Central which is located on the median of State Highway 2 Kwinana Fwy. Furthermore this route includes a depot run to Mandurah for A & B series trains or the incoming C series trains due in 2023. For Adam and his team the Mandurah Line can give them experience on future-proofing a route. Since there's plans to add Lakelands Station between Warnbro and the terminal station Mandurah opened in 2007. That way they can prevent the mistakes of Rapid Transit being not future proofed. Overall this are the reasons to why Western Australia Mandurah Line must be made for train simulator world 2.
