I'm told that, most likely, they are only empty to Cannon Hill where they start as a revenue service.

Thanks Coachdriver.  I have noted that as often they return through Wynnum later in the afternoon peak as Skyblue1 also notes when he sometimes sees one of these on a Manly service at Eagle Junction.

Thanks for all these, including other contributors, as I have been using them to keep up to date. Bit of a bummer about the job and that virus.

Thanks Phil_48 for the continued updates on the Wynnum line. Don’t know if I’ll be back for a few months as now redundant so new job will be next, hopefully near the main line city - nambour route.

Have been unable to load RP since early Wednesday - it kept timing out, so here are the pickings on the Cleveland line -  a bit slim as there is tendency for most EMU's to run in the late peak at the moment, and with increasing lack of daylight in the late afternoon it is getting harder to see from my normal vantage point as shown ( see pic ).  But I feel if I went to the local platform and hung around too long these days I could be rounded up.

Wed....32+51
Thu... New combinations namely 47+50 and 41+42.
Fri… No EMU's used.

Pic ( EMU 42 ) shows my limited vantage point....

Sat...Only EMU on Cleveland line is 48+50...

Still having difficulty logging in.  Takes about 10 minutes and has been like this for days....

Sunday EMU's in use on  Cleveland line are 34+57 and 58+59.
