Hopefully they'll keep at least 12-14 cars like they did with the S sets so a good representation across the board/numerous contracts will be retained. Interesting how in the late 1990's the NSW Gov o ...

Will be interesting if they will be willing to sell carriages to interested parties/groups. I don't believe that happened with the S sets.

What will be happening with the ATP Test Trains (Y Sets)?

From what I've read, Y2 has been stripped for spares and will never run again, apparently they badly needed ...

Based on the statement put out by THNSW even to get a 6 car set might be too hopeful....

If they even keep the same amount of V set cars as they have S set cars (14). That could allow them to, on t ...
