Having read this morning's Brisbane Courier Mail, it might explain the 3 car EMU on the Cleveland line yesterday afternoon, namely many of the NGR's have mould issues and are being withdrawn for cleaning this up.  On a daily basis now up to 4 EMU sets are being used in both peaks.  I cannot always be close enough for actual numbers though.

There were 7 NGRS on Bowen Hills depot this morning while many EMUs have been split up to work 3 car substitutes on some north side services.

43+59 overnighted at Manly Friday, and now running services all day Saturday on the Cleveland line.  Looks like the only EMU on this line today as it now 0900 with no more new arrivals from Mayne.

Does anybody have a list of what units are scrapped /stored?

I did notice what appeared to be several units stored at Fishermans Island last time I flew into Brisbane.

@2115A
Active 33 - 59
Withdrawn 01 -32, 60 - 88

Cut. Difficult as so many part units still at Ipswich.

Preserved 01 & 04

Units in storage change location from time to time so hard to pin point except FI where these don’t tend to be touched.

Locations Caboolture, Woombye, Petrie, Mayne, Ipswich and Fisherman’s Island are the core storage points.

No ICEs have been cut yet, the 1 at Ipswich is being used for spares.

84 & 88 are in storage at Petrie, not in service.

Not 100% what future holds for 80-88 but serviceable storage seems a thing. When NGRs start on the Ferny Grove line things may change as NGRs can’t cover all routes now seeing as the Nambour has some NGRs. With NGRs being out of service for air con problems there are some 3 car services being ran, for instance EMU34 has ran Springfield - Redcliffe runs all day today.
