Newcastle Interchange - The First Trains

Hi all.

12am on the morning of Sunday 15th October 2017 the concourse area of the new Newcastle Interchange station opened.
1:30am on the dot the 3 brand new platforms opened.

The very first passenger train out of the station departed soon after 1:30am.
It was a Fassifern service run by OSCar set H24 and it departed from platform number 1.
Not too long after H24 departed, Hunter set J4 formed the first Hunter Line service out of the new station.
It was bound for Telarah and departed from platform number 2.

I finished the night by catching the 2:45am service back to Sydney which was an OSCar and departed from platform number 3.

The photo's in this blog show the concourse, the other shows the first trains side by side.

Here is the link to the video:
