Comeng trains have the same horns, and T classes sound similar as well (not sure about P classes).
I had a look at last years Hitachi spotting records for 2013 and noted when they took passengers.
284M--292M - derailed 3 January 2013
278M--285M - 23 May 2013
275M--279M - 6 July 2013
273M--288M - 1 November 2013
294M--299M - 18 December 2013
Then I looked at a summary I posted here early in 2011
So unless the other two Hitachis ran in 2012 their reported last runs were -
282M--295M - 12 August 2011
290M--298M - 16 September 2011
Correct, but it is possible to identify between them by sound (not just the horn). If you know what to listen for it's fairly easy to differentiate between Hitachi and Comeng sets by sound. I've quite often heard Hitachis going past on the down (from my house, about 1 km away) and walked over to photograph them on the up.
Trains in a tip?
