4H (Oscars) to replace Newcastle K-Sets

 
  Newcastle Express Chief Commissioner

I wasn't going to say what had the honours of the last Newcastle suburban K-Set, but Scott4570 spoiled that idea!

Okay then, the second last K-set for Newcastle was K_ or K_ _

Nope, I suppose no one would want to see a video of the last K-Set.

Just an update on the 2 car K set conversion which has now been completed by Sydney Trains Maintenance staff at Hornsby Maintenance Centre. Both sets now K98(K1&K2) and K99(K3&K4) are being trialled.

Yes, those two sets have made life VERY interesting for many working "shed" recently.

IIRC, K98 had some issues with the motor cars arguing with each other a couple of weeks ago...  Flat batteries and lots of foot pumping has been the order of the day on multiple occasions...  Some good real world Faults and Failure refresher work though.

Tis a bit sad seeing them with the driver trailer cabs all boarded up...

Original set K98 should now be running as K91: 3576, 4242, 4232, 3566.

There has been no consist or cars allocated to set K91 for some time.
We should now have a full complement of forty (40) 4car K sets with target plates in the range of K60 to K99.

That's correct scott4570. Looks like K98 & K99 could be trialled this weekend.
