They have had a few shutdowns them selves due to the control room being
shutdown (fire alarms usually) with the trains all halting at the next
station when they don't get onward instructions from 'control'. They are
not immune to problems. They just are not tied directly into the TfNSW
'super-brain' that runs the conventional network.

I'm sure TfNSW has a project team on addressing that 'shortcoming'. :-)
