Am back again! Had medical emergency at Eagle Junction causing 30min delays on Redcliffe line this morning at about 7:40-8:20am.
50 & 17 have moved on from Mayne and now closer to the bridge are 28 & 46, 28 northernmost.

Anyway, I’m trying to get a bit more diligent about updating every day or so.

Nothing special yesterday except the changes at Mayne Yard.

Saw a couple of 6 car EMU sets yesterday, one on the southern approach to the Merivale Bridge, the other where the MBRL crosses the M1 (Murrumba Downs?). Couldn't get set numbers whilst driving however.
  neillfarmer Chief Train Controller

There are still a lot of them about Graham. I made 4 trips between Ferny Grove and the City last week, 3 of them were by early units and all in the off peak time too.

Yesterday I reported on two EMU sets on the Cleveland line for the weekend.  One of them has failed.  29+86 now stored in Manly, pantos lowered.  As the line is isolated for the weekend so no spares available from Mayne, 122 + partner has been split into two 3 car units to keep the services going.

58+87 Wynnum this morning.

Yesterday I reported 29+86 stored in Manly as a result of a possible failure.  Just minutes ago at 1006 - a 12 car EMU went through Wynnum.  I was not quick enough to get numbers but my guess is the stricken unit is being towed back to Mayne by an MT EMU, with the regular pax service ( 10 late )  right on its heels.

I think we should include 121-124 seeing as they are as loud as the original 101-110 and as ancient. Lol

I didn’t realise they were 6 years apart. So with that I’ll leave it to you guys if you want to report them. I guess these aren’t under threat of withdrawal from service like the others then?
Just going forward, it seems like the only cyclops running is 76 with 75 at Mayne Sidings.
Also missing for at least a month is set 35. Looking at my list it’s not been seen since at least 12/11. I’m currently updating it so will have more precise info soon.
