tracks and two island platforms. Each island platform serves trains of the same direction. Immediately east of Westmead, the 'Up (Railways in Sydney#Terminology) Main' track passes under the 'Up and Down (Railways in Sydney#Terminology) West Suburban' tracks, so that east of Westmead, tracks are arranged 'Up Down Up Down' and west of Westmead they are arranged 'Up Up Down Down'. Also east of Westmead, points (Railroad switch) allow trains to cross between 'Main' (fast) and 'Suburban


white line

(hence the 'C' set designation), which gives the train smoother acceleration. Gate turn-off thyristors (Thyristor) were used to control power to the traction motors, hence allowing for smoother acceleration. Following the success of the implementation of chopper control, these features were later installed on the Tangara (CityRail T & G sets) and later V set (CityRail V set) cars. These were the first cars to have an electronic destination display board, replacing the old red-and-white

line lights. The '''K set''' is a class of electric multiple unit operated by CityRail in Sydney & Newcastle (Newcastle, New South Wales), New South Wales, Australia. Like the L, R & S sets, the K set is a stainless steel double deck train. The "K" set introduced many new features to the suburban fleet prior to the introduction of the Tangara (CityRail T & G sets) such as air conditioning and headlights. To accommodate the air conditioning and associated equipment, the pantograph (pantograph (rail)) had to be shifted to the adjacent trailer car to which the motor car is semi-permanently coupled and high voltage cables ran between the two cars. The motor cars have four four phase Mitsubishi 150 kW motors (as per R and S Sets (L, R & S set (CityRail))), knuckle couplers and a maximum speed of 115 km h. All carriages were constructed by A Goninan & Co. (United Group Rail). '''Caringbah''' is a CityRail railway station, located on the Cronulla (Cronulla, New South Wales) branch of Sydney's Illawara line (Illawarra railway line). Located in the Sydney suburb of Caringbah (Caringbah, New South Wales) it serves a residential and commercial area. '''Narwee''' is a railway station on the Airport and East Hills Line (East Hills railway line) of the CityRail network. Located in the Sydney suburb of Narwee (Narwee, New South Wales), it serves a residential area. '''Beverly Hills''' railway station is a CityRail station (Railway station) on the East Hills (Airport and East Hills railway line) railway line in Sydney. It serves the suburb of Beverly Hills (Beverly Hills, New South Wales). It has an island platform. East of the station, the four track section to Wolli Creek junction begins. By 2010, it is proposed that 4 tracks will pass through Beverly Hills as a result of quadruplication between Kingsgrove (Kingsgrove railway station) and Revesby (Revesby railway station) as part of the Clearways Project (CityRail Clearways Project). '''North Warnervale''' is a proposed all stops station on the Newcastle and Central Coast (Newcastle and Central Coast railway line, New South Wales) intercity line of the CityRail network in New South Wales, Australia. It will serve the new town centre of Northern Warnervale (Warnervale, New South Wales) (Woongarrah (Woongarrah, New South Wales)). The plans were put forward to council in March 2006 but no construction has begun as yet.
