QR Diesel hauling an EMU (possibly 6 car) set northbound through the Dakabin area at about 11.20am today.

My position and situation meant that I couldn't see any numbers (only really caught the rooflines)

And they just returned southbound.

Perhaps 84&88 being taken out of Petrie, with the diesel changing ends at Narangba then heading south?

@Red dragon. It was 84 & 88 being turned at Caboolture for another trip to Mayne, they shouldn’t be returning to Petrie this time.

Thanks.

Wonder if they are going back into service or out to the 'farm'. I believe there was a process a while back, where units were cycled in and out of service rather than being constantly used (or scrapped).

Another EMU set under tow by a diesel loco northbound around Dakabin today, about 5 minutes ago. Will keep an ear out for it heading southbound.

Edit: Loco's returned light engine just now.

Cleveland line this weekend only operating between Murarrie and Cleveland.  Only 4 units needed - all overnighting at Manly.  The only EMU in the mix is 32+55.  Also 206+212. The other two 6 car sets are both 220's.  So nothing newer than 220's on the Cleveland line all weekend.
