Dave, that's what I thought the problem was too, but the Waratahs have been getting the new logos just as fast as they were before all this supposed legal action. Combine this with very little media coverage, and I'm inclined to think it's all a storm in a teacup. All I keep hearing is the figure $6m, and that's a payout to continue using the logo. They wouldn't be rolling it out across more Waratahs every night if there was any doubt if it could be used or not.

I don't know about the $6m payout to continue to use the logo, but the new uniforms cost $6.6m.

Makes sense, no point having only 1 regional line. Either have others as regional (Southern Highlands and possibly have Orange-Lithgow shuttles) or get rid of it and make it intercity. They chose the later.

I'd suggest this is the start of a larger shakeup by NSW TrainLink to redistribute how their trains operate, to ensure the best value for the commuters and other passengers alike.

30 days still no logos on most sets. Empty poster cases and bugger all brochures. Zero ticket wallets.
My point is the private sector would of got the full package done before launch.

That was NOT what we were discussing, I completely agree with you on that point.

I'm still waiting for any hard evidence, official comments, etc.

What happens in four weeks?

Incidentally, vine reports that an OSCar is in at UGL for NSWTrainLinkification, and at least one other V Set has been shunted into MainTrain for the same treatment.

Saw the set today, it appears that it is just the side decals as per V1/16. The front appears unchanged, however can't confirm as I didn't sight the front.

Slight correction, was Smile. Saw it tonight at Sydney Terminal looking like V1 and V16, and smelling of fresh paint. I imagine another four car set will be cycled in for the update too now?

The OSCar in for NSWTrainification I had heard was in the H40 series, so perhaps it's getting a full re-do like the V Sets, and they're just going to apply logos to the other sets in the meantime?

These refurbishments are inpressive on the V sets I must say. And I'm looking forward to seeing H40 (in photos of course) after having NSWTrainLink emblems applied.

Are there anymore V sets awaiting these refurbs?

I must clarify, it's in the H40-49 series, I'm not sure which set it was. This has yet to be confirmed too...

H17+H43 now have Transport NSW Trainlink. I passed them at Eveleigh this morning.

You can't so much visit as you can "ride a train past and peer in".

Maintrain is at Auburn next to AMF (Waratah train storage place)
fixitguy
the correct info.

Maintrain is dead - they lost the contract. but the site is own by the state with a new group running the site.

AMF is a large workshop - not a storage place. the storage or yards are being built see : http://www.transport.nsw.gov.au/projects-auburn-stabling
