The site seems to be unable to find anything if you just put in number ...

The D sets actually have a max operational speed of 130km/h, same as the OSCARs. They test them up to 143km/h (10% above max).

Not very up to date, but see [url=]

^ I heard that a report about which cars contain asbestos was lost, so all sets are being scrapped in case any have asbestos inside.

Interesting that they were running separately as the plan was to make them in semi-permanent 8-car sets, with some controls retained in the middle cars for shunting purposes. Perhaps they were testing ...

I've noticed that the need for precise stopping position already slows down services as they are now. I travel through Museum a lot and I've noticed that drivers do tend to pull in slower as the platf ...

^ The train next to it is an A set, as there is no display unit above the lower deck stairs.

I've compared the latest DRKD on (document dated Aug 2018, map dated 18-Sep-2017) to my copy (document dated Jul 2014, map dated 28-Nov-2013). None of the speed limits are different betwe ...

By the looks of it, B2 is currently running run number 848 on weekdays and random runs on weekends.

^ The T sets have two brake modes, automatic and electropneumatic (E/P). Not sure what that means, but I think the automatic mode takes longer to release the brakes. As seen in this video: https://www ...

I miss the NSW one being on one PDF.
I still have an old copy of the PDF from July 2014. Every thing is still quite current, it just doesn't have the South West Rail Link.

Isn't there a 8T on standby at Everleigh MC during the off-peak? I got a T set on Thursday afternoon on the 1535 ex-Museum, normally timetabled to be 8K. It was a half Mortdale/Hornsby set.
