PCO 2 sees little use because it only has one generator set, and this is underpowered to run over a FSH set, as the H set airconditioners when under full load draw maximum power,
It appears another dud buy by the brains trust of V/Line, it is not through cabled for HEP ex the train loco either, and even the PCPs and PH powervans output is greater.
At the time of the WCR collapse V/Line could have chosen to get any number of BS-BRS cars or BZ269/270 and ACZ 255, but with the head in the sand mentality got the junk they now are stuck with.
Club Victoria was repainted from the previous classic carriage livery to the new modern image as the previous managing director used to like to hold "commuter forums' - a taxpayer funded junket, whereby the senior managers would swan around like the directors of BHP in their exclusive carriage, but this fell by the wayside and they now mix with the plebs.
The car is available for hire --- off whom and how is not advertised anywhere on the V/Line website. so it is just wheeled out for the junket indulging snout in the through upper echalon on the Warrnambool cup, once a year, although may get more use on Albury trains if the Rutherglen red mob starts up again after being Smegged off account the weekend closures for the past 18 months.
The Club car has also been fitted with POS buffet registers, to allow it to operate as a buffet car if need ever arose I believe.
Perhaps the WWOTBG women could hire it on the last run of the 1833 Shepparton Chardonnay set in late August.
