Off-topic as well, but does anyone know how/why the things that describe you change, and when (like Beginner, Train Controller, Chief Commissioner etc). I couldn’t find a thread that discussed it.

My uneducated guess it that the names refer to the number of posts made, obviously using rail career promotions.

72 is with 20 in Old Mayne (this morning), as has been for the past few days. Have they actually gotten rid of any of the EMU00s at all? I have noticed more of the newer trains are coming out, or maybe that’s just because of the Ekka.

There was a disposal tender granted to someone a couple of years back for these units but have heard nothing since. A rail connected yard at Sunshine near Virginia was having work done on it including temporary fencing so could be a good place to scrap units but there are now new sleepers along each track so guess they won’t be getting cut up here.
