Run 66 is finally a B. So now 10 are regularly covered.

Just saw B16 at Wolli Creek.
  SydneyCider Chief Train Controller

Saw B16 in service today. Bevan Wall also posted the transfer of set B18 from Cardiff to Auburn which took place today. So far 14 of 24 sets in service, they'll probably be at about 17 or 18 of 24 by the State election in late March.

Now we’re getting there.
As well as the normal 10 runs covered (60-69). This morning there are two new ones 83 and 90, giving a total of 12 Bs out and about.
  C3765 Junior Train Controller

From today run 32 is a B Set and run 25 which was formerly an S Set roster is now a K Set roster.

B Set Runs: 32, 60-69, 83 and 90

Total of 13 B Set Rosters

Runs 83 and 90 still seem to be serviced by A sets even though they are rostered as Bs

Any news on B14? I read elsewhere it had been damaged / defaced ?

B Sets are rostered to run the Lidcombe-Olympic Park shuttles instead of the usual 4-Car S Sets, just for today and tomorrow. Today one of them was an 8 Car Tangara. From Friday they will be run by 4-Car S Sets as usual again.
  Airvan99 Junior Train Controller

^^ interesting, all the travel app have been showing that B2 sets are operating the Olympic Park shuttles yesterday and today. So that indicates that they use the STNs for their displays.
Probably a good idea to test the new B2s on the intense shuttle.
The apps are saying 15 B2s in service today (but we now know that is the aspiration of the STNs)

Very temporary as the B sets are getting delivered quickly due to the election coming up.
  C3765 Junior Train Controller

Run 33 is now a B Set Roster and Run 15 is now a K Set Roster. I think since Monday or Tuesday.

So today there should’ve been B Sets running runs: L1,L2,32,33,60,61,62,63,64,65,66,67,68,69,83,90 but I doubt they were all B Sets as A Sets often run B Set rosters.

A Sets and B Sets are like the K Sets and S Sets now. You don’t know which one is going to turn up.

I think the 40 runs which are originally K sets will be the last to get the conversion to B sets.
