Also, hellohellomtm, don't use three-letter abbreviations for stations.  It looks stupid.

Would this be the first time an Xtrap has run to the racecourse?

I believe I remember seeing a photo posted up of an X-Trap running a Derby Day service by accident, so it has happened before, and in revenue service!

This was the third planned (test) X'Trapolis to Flemington Racecourse.  I took photos of one there in 2002.

The set (yesterday's run) was the modified X'Trapolis set.  893M-1647T-894M-956M-1678T-955M.

There are some minor signalling works that would need to happen at Flemington Racecourse if they wanted the line signed off for X'Trapolis running.

Well we aren't that far away from Spring Carnival, so if they did want the X-traps available, could be some work happening soon to make those minors mods then.
