Sorry about that last post. Seems the phone wanted to do its own thing.
So I got rare haulage with 28 & 46 on the 4.08 from Milton to Redcliffe only to have it failed at Central with stops as far as Bowen Hills. It then terminated and went on the depot. I passed it later with 46s pantograph lowered. It hit Roma Street pretty hard and fast so something may have got damaged.
We will see if it re-emerge.

One of the things I used to read on various forums was a major software component in one of the series (was it the 200??) is no longer obtainable so that series will last only as long as spares are available or they redo the electronics in that whole series with a more modern replacement set up.

Tried to send this yesterday but RP down ----- 204+207 Wynnum Mon afternoon.

@petan the whole 200 series (2nd batch) needs a complete overhaul as their general internal and external presentation is awful, the ride is uncomfortable and that sideways seating is hated by many passengers. The mechanicals are rubbish too.

Hi guys,

You’re all doing fantastic work documenting movements. But I do have a small request. Could we perhaps have the OP edited to document which sets have been withdrawn and which are in service? I know it would be a workout for the OP, but in all honestly, I’m finding it difficult to keep up.

I’d like to know how many sets have been withdrawn, whether the ICEs are all gone, etc.

Finally, any idea why the IMUs and SMUs are going so soon? The IMUs were my next favourite trains after the ICE and I’m really surprised and saddened to see some of them going.

I heard in my own thread that some of the SMUs were being repowered at Downer EDI, any update on this? Would be kinda cool to see if they sound any different to what I’m used to.

Cheers,
Rory
