The New Sydney Trains thread

S142 I think is one of the rogues with the CityRail logo still on it. Go you good thing!

One of the S Sets I saw yesterday didn't have the white 'transport' in the logo. Just the orange hop and Sydney Trains with a gap in the middle.

It would be nice if they branded the Millenniums the same as they have with the Waratahs with the big logo in the middle. Give 'em a proper external clean while they're at it. Some of them look awful - maybe due to removal of graffiti over time.

Excellent pics CMTheTrainGeek. Smile S2/S51 were recently refurbished at UGL Broadmeadow. S51 was also heavily refurbished at UGL UniPart (Maintrain) with S75.

Thanks Smile first try lol


So.... what has UGL refurbished on these sets?
  sydnytrains Chief Commissioner

Well UGL UniPart (Maintrain) are doing heavy CCO's (Component Change Out) to extend the life of the S sets until 2019/2020. Basically, replacing every component that needs replacing and repainting the interiors/exteriors. I believe the sets done are the following:

S139 - 3030-4105-4949-3042
S127 - 3001-4016-4167-3764
S75 - 3945-4023-4094-3968
S51 - 3899-4107-4035-3765
S74 - 3041-4031-4138-3071 (Ex S7)
S151 - 3933-4125-4954-3983 (Ex S76)
S45 - 3021-4938-4018-3033

244hseriesalco would have more details on that.

While at UGL Broadmeadow, the refurbishments are scaled down much more, only giving repaints to sets on the interior and exterior. These sets apparently the 'priority' sets to be next at Maintrain, though, multiple cars have been withdrawn. I have a list of S sets that have been to Broadmeadow on the 'S set scrapping has begun' thread.

EDIT: Spelling errors.

I've now seen every train barring the Hunter, Xplorer and XPT trains with the new logo. The former because... well, they're not often seen in Sydney.

Wonder how long it'll be until non-sector 1 T Sets start being re-branded? I assume it's just the sector 1 T Sets that have been rebranded so far.

Also yet to see any Mills with Sydney Trains branding to date.

Get your photos of naked sets while you can because very soon they'll have Sydney Trains/NSW TrainLink branding on them.

I'm holding onto a theory that the Millennium trains are going to have a full overhaul soon(ish) that will include a complete interior and exterior refresh, complete with Waratah-style logos (ie orange at the front, large logos along the sides). Considering how similar they look to a Waratah (for passengers, not enthusiasts), it seems a good bet.

Between you, me and the fencepost, they're due. There seem to be a few out of service with "issues" (there's at least one K set and one T set on Sector 2 services doing Millennium runs), and the seat fabrics have a long-term grime issue in which they're past the point of cleaning... I'd wager on them being turned into pseudo-Waratahs, myself.

All speculation on the part of me, Raichase, so assume the opposite to be true.

Interesting - I was sent a photo of the Trainlink logo on the side of an Endeavour. Perhaps it was a hoax? In these days of Photoshop, it's not hard to imagine. I'll admit, I've yet to see the set in person, so can't confirm or deny.

On BA someone has said that an Xplorer set has the new logo with "NSW Trainlink Regional"  on the sides.

Set is EA2508/EC2528

Might not be BS mate Smile My comment is based on the Endeavours that I encounter in my workplace - which on the South Coast line is only 2 x 2 car sets at any one time. Haven't seen any at Sydney Terminal recently or had occasion to be out at Eveleigh over the past few weeks, but will notify when I do see one.

BTW worked my first rebranded Oscar the other day Very Happy

Which it is! Saw an M Set yesterday with the regular (small) Sydney Trains branding (ala S Sets). M21 if I recall correctly.

Also saw a Tangara (sector 1) with the small Sydney Trains branding for the first time on Monday.

there's at least one K set and one T set on Sector 2 services doing Millennium runs

In anticipation of many K Sets having sector 2 as their new home, there will be 4 sector 2 K Set runs starting in just under 2 weeks.

Well I'll be buggered. Just seen a empty K set freshly refurbished.
Seems the hop logo has slightly changed again. The orange arch is now red with a light grey shadow arch that don't show up very well on stainless steel. The orange/yellow ball is also gone!

The number of meme references here is too damn high.

Has the been any talk of repainting the front of the OSCARs in NSW Trainlink livery? It seems the paint design of the upgraded V sets is made to suit the front of the OSCARs.
