I think I spotted EM100 at Blackburn at about 12:05 pm heading toward Flinders Street, but I didn't get a good look at it.
It definitely was not a spark or IEV102.

Looking at that paint job, I think that should be trialled on a Hitachi set (minus the striping on the side). Don't know how people would react to a yellow fronted silver train, but it might just work.

The only guess I can make is that it matches the Siemens trains. Seems to be no other reason for it.

Yes - 'it's everywhere, it's everywhere, it's everywhere' - was that Manfred the Wonder Dog, Tom Terrific or Chicken Man - it was before my time haha?

Seriously though, does anything ever come of its recording. The track out my way seems as bad as ever!

I suspect that it has to be considered dangerous before anything will be done, otherwise they'll just slap a speed restriction on it.
