Newcastle Interchange - The First Trains

Hi all.

12am on the morning of Sunday 15th October 2017 the concourse area of the new Newcastle Interchange station opened.
1:30am on the dot the 3 brand new platforms opened.

The very first passenger train out of the station departed soon after 1:30am.
It was a Fassifern service run by OSCar set H24 and it departed from platform number 1.
Not too long after H24 departed, Hunter set J4 formed the first Hunter Line service out of the new station.
It was bound for Telarah and departed from platform number 2.

I finished the night by catching the 2:45am service back to Sydney which was an OSCar and departed from platform number 3.

The photo's in this blog show the concourse, the other shows the first trains side by side.

Here is the link to the video:

NSW Police Academy V Set Carriages

Hi everyone.

On Wednesday 26th and Thursday 27th July 2017 V Set Carriages DCM8022 & DCM8027 were road hauled from Chullora to the NSW Police Academy in Goulburn.

DCM8027 was first to go in the early hours of Wednesday Morning.
DCM8022 went in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Each night the carriages left Chullora just after midnight.
Arriving at Goulburn at roughly 2:30am.

Here is some brief history on each of the carriages.

DCM8022 was retired from service in October 2011.
This carriage seemingly had a pretty clean life with no significant events occurring apart from this transfer of course.

DCM8027 was part of set V13 and was retired from service in July 2013 along with therest of the set following an incident in the Blue Mountains suburb of Medlow Bath where a tree landed on the top deck of the lead car of V13. The lead car was DCM8028.
DCM8027 was the fourth position carriage.
The tree fell as a result of strong winds.

These two carriages will now be used for training purposes at a scenario railway station called Rossiville which was constructed within the NSW Police Academy in Goulburn.

K & C Sets Withdrawn From Service

Hi everyone!
About a week ago Asbestos fibres were found in the K and C Set fleet forcing them to be withdrawn from service until the issue was rectified.
Delays and service cancellations were experienced on the T5 Cumberland line due to the shortage of trains.
As of Monday all K and C Sets were out of service and all S Sets were released into service to cater for the train shortage.

The photo in this blog shows S Sets S135 & S69 at Penrith station on Platform 3 after terminating on return from Hornsby.

Its unclear as to when the K and C Set fleet will return to service.

Thanks for reading.
Phil.
