Thankfully this afternoon I had a bit more of the EMU experience.
12 & 04 Cleveland

? & 31 Ipswich

29 & 87 Redcliffe

I agree that the NGR seats ain’t great for the posterior on distance rides. I mean, if they put them on the Nambour/Gympie North services after the ICEs are taken out, some people will have some seriously sore bums at the end of their trip!

This afternoon:
