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K & C Sets Withdrawn From Service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About a week ago Asbestos fibres were found in the K and C Set fleet forcing them to be withdrawn from service until the issue was rectified.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.

Endeavour Sets Get a New Look

Hi all and thanks for reading another transport blog.

This one is about our Endeavour Sets.
A few weeks ago set 7 was released from Downer EDi in Cardiff with the NSW TrainLink livery.
Not only does the exterior look different but the interior has a couple of minor changes such as flooring that matches the Sydney Trains Waratah fleet and just an overall brighter look with the help of new LED lighting.

London Taxi's Hit Australia!

Hi all.
A couple of days ago I was going for a stroll around Milsons Point near Bradfield Park.
While on this peaceful walk I came across a Taxi that beared a strong resemblance to a London Taxi.
I then remembered hearing on the news about London style Taxi's coming to Sydney.
I walked closer and noticed the badge on the front of the Taxi said "The London Taxi Company".
I immediately asked the driver if it was ok if I took a couple of photo's as I was quite fascinated.
He was very kind and basically told me to go nuts with photo's, so I did!
The best photo is the one you can see here in this Blog.

Thank you all for reading, I will be sure to post more Blogs about these cool looking Taxi's as more photo opportunities arise.
