I think it's displaying train arrival times for connecting services, so that if a train is running a minute or two late then the bus driver knows and may wait a while.
Yeah that may be the case as they all say the same regardless of the route/stand.

That may not be the case. I noticed trains arriving and leaving while an a number was displayed. No busses were at the bus stop at the station at the time and they usually arrive AFTER the a numbers cease and the sign moves to the next service.

Another frequency change with the recent bus contract changes is Swan Transit's old Kalamunda channel 473.675, is now the Shenton Park & Nth Fremantle channel.

Just to clarify the question about the little signs with times and numbers at the bus interchanges.
They are real time arrival displays.
They display the next two arrival times from Perth. The box next to the times shows whether or not the train is on time.
When is shows 0 its running on time. If you see a 10 in the box then that service is 10 minutes behind.
When the train arrives the little box shows an 'A' for arrived. It will go up to A3 (arrived 3 mins ago) then scroll on to the next service.
That helps us bus drivers to know how our rail connections are travelling and how long we may need to wait for the train.

I hope that helps

Bundy.

I would think either the normal channel or their old secondary which they were only using for training. It is in the thread somewhere or search acma database Path owed it from memory.

Brookfield Train Control Areas

CTC areas marked in Red, (Centralised Train Control) Blue areas are Train Order areas.

Brookfield Network Map

Note all the new Tier 3 line closures, thanks to the state government, Grain is now on road, all the ARG and QRN Narrow gauge trains that used to be at Merredin and ran regular services out the Narembeen line and Trayning lines, are now parked at QRN in Welshpool depot awaiting their fate....

Brookfield Communications Map

While some lines have closed, others have picked up more traffic, ARG are running ore trains from Karara into the Gerldton Port, and Mineral Resource's are running ore from the Sothern Cross area to Kwinana, in what I can say is one of the best looking trains and wagons.

While the Article states they are USA built trains, they are in fact a UGL C44aci Built in Broadmedows

This is the next model up from the all too familiar NR class that are run by PAC NAT
