According to a post on this page, only 29 EMU units left in service. https://railbotforum.org/mbs/index.php?topic=14293.msg247507;topicseen#new

Based on SkyBlue's data, appears to be units 30-59.

EMUs 30 /32-59 are the only ones running in regular service.
18 / 29 / 31 and 80-88 are in storage. May be 1 or 2 more.

With the scarce numbers of EMUs/ IMUs and SMUs at Milton over the last few weeks postings have been slim.

21/06
31 at Kippa Ring Sidings
44 & 54 at Milton on special
50 & 51 at Central on southbound run

105 & 110 at Milton on Nambour run

With 6 x 200 series SMUs now in store, and a host of EMUs / IMUs seemingly missing, I’m guessing these are being relegated to Ferny Grove and Shorncliffe workings.
Milton certainly got boring with NGRs and 2nd gen IMU/SMU sets.
