Today (Thursday 9th October 2014) I spotted Tangara set T96 with M Set doors.

To watch my video just click/tap the link at the top of this post.

With these new doors i think this will decrease delays.
It see that vandals kick out the panels on the current doors, with these new doors there are no panels therefor delays will be slightly decreased.

What do you think about the new doors?

The new light weight doors. T64 is the next set to get them, being fitted at HMC. These doors will increase reliability hopefully.

Ah good Smile
I thought that T96 was just trialling these doors.

Would anyone be able to notify me on this thread when T96 enters service please? Smile

Inspected? Can't he go out to Hornsby MC for 30 minutes to have a look if he wants? A chance to meet some of his employees too.

Have they replaced the "Doors Closing, Please Stand Clear" announcement and the warning tone when the doors close

Saw T96 this afternoon at Redfern operating a Penrith passenger service. It was coupled to a 4-car set which currently retains the original doors.

There is one thing you cannot accuse Howard of and that is not meeting staff. I have met him along with most of the senior staff of NSW Trains. Your comment is uncalled for and really churlish. Perhaps he had other engagements on that day and it was more convenient to inspect the train at Central.

Do not get me wrong, when senior staff deserve criticism I am first in line but fair go.

As stated before its a 4 car refurbed coupled with an original 4 car.

It wasn't a criticism. You're looking too much into my post.

Does anyone know how the new M-set style doors on T sets respond when people try and stop them from closing?

One of the (few) good features of the existing T set doors is that people running late aren't able to simply stick their hands/umbrellas/pretty much anything between the closing doors to make them automatically re-open. In contrast, M and A sets are often subject to delays when late running passengers (or school kids messing around) simply stick something between the doors which then duly re-open by themselves.

People seem to treat these doors like elevator doors and know they'll reopen if they hold them. I've even seen some people on trains thinking it's polite or chivalrous to make the doors re-open if they see a late running passenger making a dash towards the train.

Anyone know if the new T set doors behave the same way?

Yes, it's a safety feature in these sets I believe

The tangara doors operate on a rubber band on steroids, and hydraulics (open to correction) - Let's just say, I wouldn't want to stick my hands between the doors.

Another good thing with the Tangaras is the rapid door function (double press the open/close button) and it'll go light speed!
