EVEN by RailCorp's rubbery standards the state's latest train project - the $440 million outer-suburban car (OSCAR) - is seriously late.
First promised by Carl Scully to be "on the coast by 2005", OSCAR is beset by testing problems and is unlikely to be in public service next year, The Daily Telegraph can reveal.

The bungled introduction has left egg on the face of Transport Minister John Watkins at a time the Government is desperate to resurrect its rail credentials ahead of election 2007.
