Longer trains vs. more frequent trains is usually a result of old signalling systems that can't cope with higher frequency. I know this is the case here in Melbourne.

I figured something like that, but I still find it odd they would do what I believe comes to half a billion dollars of work to avoid upgrading their signalling systems. (Well, they are doing more than that in the upgrades, but it's still lame.)
