From 13 February until 13 May 2012, selected CityRail services travelling between Central and Newcastle stations consist of 'quiet carriages'.
'Quiet carriages' are those where passengers are asked to respect the peace and quiet by refraining from loud conversations, using mobile phones or playing loud music, providing a better train journey for everyone.

During the trial, the last carriage of all four-car trains and the first and last carriages of all six and eight-car trains are designated quiet carriages.
Quiet carriages are customer regulated. There are no penalties or consequences for not being quiet in a quiet carriage, but everyone is encouraged to respect the peace and quiet and not to disturb other passengers.
Have you been in a 'Quiet Carriage' on your way to work or during your weekend travels? Will it work? Let us know what you think on our Facebook Page.
