New Series 2 Waratah Trains Now Testing

Hi all.
As most of you may know we are getting new trains known as Th Series 2 Waratah or B set.
We will be getting 24 of these trains so B1 to B24.
There is an option to get more sets with may be for fleet growth or even to wipe out the K and C set fleet, we will have to wait and see.

The first of the B sets B1 has been delivered and has started testing on the Sydney Trains network.
The photo below shows set B1 at Mulgrave station under test.

I will now paste three links to three videos:

XRN Classes Have A New Livery

Hi all!
I just want to talk about something that had changed a few months ago that i was a bit slow at capturing.
The XRN Class C44aci fleet that were with Xstrata Rail National (XRN) and Glencore have been bought by Genesee & Wyoming (G&W) along with the company.
The XRN fleet are in progress of receiving the G&W Livery.

The photo below shows locomotive XRN013 with the G&W livery.

This is actually my first photo of an XRN Class in this livery as i haven’t really had the time to make my way up to the Hunter etc until the day the photo was taken (4/1/2018).

Thanks for reading :)

New Trains For Sydney Coming 2018

Hi all.
Exciting news for train buffs in Sydney.
We are getting new trains!
They will be similar in appearance to our Waratah A Sets.
The new trains will be known as B Sets and there will be 24 of them.
Numbered B1 - B24.
They will be 8 car sets just like the Waratahs.
The first one is due to arrive in approx March 2018.

Sadly as the new trains arrive our S Set fleet will be progressively scrapped.
I will put 2 photo’s below.
The photo’s show stickers that are placed in every S Set carriage.

So by next summer the all trains on the Sydney Trains network will have air conditioning.

That is all for this blog.
Thank you for reading and i’ll catch you all next time.
