This thread talks about it: http://warsug.info/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=6

However there are many many repeaters dotted around the place. Half way down the page there is this, but I think there are many more:

Transperth Metro Train Control
418.2 Midland
418.725 East Perth
418.125 Claremont
418.175 East Perth
418.7 Martin
418.775 Northbridge
418.6 Doubleview

Hi There,
Thank you for you're quick reply, but i did try this but they seem to be the BUS network as they say for example (2302) which is a bus number not a train number???

Sorry if this is a stupid question.

You might be hearing driver number xxxx as they call up the drivers by their staff number I believe, not train/set number. That should be the trains channel.
