A bit late but on Saturday (25/5/2013) stabled at Epping were
278M-1919T-277M - 300M-2007T-299M

288M-1979T-287M - 276M-1910T-275M

285M-1977T-286M - 274M-1909T-273M

The Hitachi sets you mentioned aren't correct.
In March, four Hitachis were rearranged as follows
288M-1979T-287M-293M-1987T-294M
279M-1922T-280M-276M-1910T-275M
278M-1919T-277M-286M-1977T-285M
273M-1909T-274M-300M-2007T-299M.

On another note, I saw 288M-1979T-287M-293M-1987T-294M at Ringwood running a Belgrave service on Friday at 605pm.

I noticed that some Hitachis have been arranged again. I saw a Hitachi stabled at Glen Waverley last night in a new configuration:
299M-2007T-300M-293M-1987T-294M

That reminds me, lately ive noticed that there are always atleast 1 or 2 hitachis stabled at epping during the day after peak hour service which has been occurring for the past 2 months because I assume it's because of the maintenance center at Epping.

also I have noticed a new set configuration:


273M-1909T-274M- 287M-1979T-288M

Does anyone know if hitachi set 284M-1975T-283M-291M-1982T-292M will make a comeback to service because after it derailed I heard a rumour that the cables that connect each carriage to one another would cost around $500,000 dollars to replace and I just wanted to know if anyone has word on where it currently is at or if it will be reactivated because I don't see any reason to not considering their is still a train shortage. Cant they just reactivate hitachi's 298m or 295m?

No-one in their right mind would spend half a million dollars on an old train when new carriages have literally been coming off the boat. Besides, they have to repair ex-Dandenong set 589M-1022T-583M before that (589M bumped heads with 305M, while itself and 1022T ended up in the dirt, with 583M being practically undamaged).

It saddens me to say that 299M-2007T-300M-293M-1987T-294M was stabled at Burnley in the morning.

I rode 279M-1922T-280M-276M-1910T-275M from Flinders Street to Parliament on a Hurstbridge service. I didn't like the closing door tone in 275M.

I'm assuming that would have been 279M-1922T-280M-276M-1910T-275M. I caught that on a Hurstbridge service on Wednesday, and got off at Parliament.

I saw 288M-1979T-287M-274M-1909T-273M running on the Frankston line and 279M-1922T-280M-276M-1910T-275M running a Flemington Racecourse service.

One Hitachi arriving at South Morang this morning just as my train departed, and another two stabled at Epping as my train went past.

Saw a Hitachi last week at Southern Cross going to Lilydale that looked more like a mural than a train.  The grafitti ferals had had an absolute field day!

Four days later and it's still there, presumably defective?

Maybe they just didn't need to use it.

Is it just me, or have the Hitachis been running a lot less frequently in the last month or two?

The last of the 7 X'traps came in service not long ago, that could be why.

I live on the Glen Waverley line, and I can tell you I am so bored with the X'traps. I remember I used to hope for my train to be an X'trapolis, and not a Comeng.
