Transperth B Series Transfer Process

Typed on: Saturday 16th August 2016

Hi all and welcome to another STV Blog.

When i upload videos of Transperth B Series sets on the back of freight trains on transfer through Sydney a few of you ask why there is a B Series set in Sydney.

Well i thought id explain it.
Well ill do my best anyway.

For those who don't know what a Transperth B Series train is.
They are the newest passenger trains that operate in Perth on the Transperth Train Network.
Here's a photo of Transperth B Series set 115 being transferred through Thornleigh just north of Sydney with one of Sydnes new trains 'Waratah' next to it.

The B Series trains are built by Downer EDi in Maryborough in QLD.
The B series is transferred from the EDi plant in Maryborough to Acacia Ridge in South East QLD where it's put on standard gauge transfer bogies and attached to a freight train from Acacia Ridge to Morandoo Yard in NSW near Newcastle.
From Morandoo it's put on the back of a steel train and transferred to Port Augusta in South Australia via the Central Coast, Sydney & Goulburn etc.
Im sure it's put onto another train for the remainder of the journey from Port Augusta to Perth.

Locomotive NR8 Fire!

Typed on: Monday 4th April 2016:

Hi all and welcome to another STV Blog.

Major delays and the partial closure of the Central Coast and Newcastle line between Hamilton and Fassifern were experienced today due to a fire that broke out on Pacific National Locomotive NR8 travelling from Whyalla (South Australia) to Newcastle (New South Wales).
The fire broke out somewhere between Fassifern and Hamilton.

The damage was extensive and there is no word on whether NR8 will be scrapped or not.

The fire was caused by an engine failure.

Thats all the information i have at the moment.
If any more information comes to hand ill type an update Blog.

Thank you all for reading.
