From the Field - Sydney Trains Indicator Board “Line Map”

Taken at Eastwood station this morning on the way into the city.

The scrolling list of stations on the screen is presented as a simplified line map of the route (in this case, the Northern Line), even down to the correct colour for the route, and an indication of which stations interchange with other routes by use of an interchange lozenge instead of a regular station tick mark.

This style of indicator board is not standard across the Sydney rail network (downtown, they’re simply a scrolling list of station names in white type on a blue background), but it’s a surprisingly attractive and informative presentation of useful information.
