At 12.59pm today I spotted EM100 from Richmond heading toward Flinders Street.
Judging by the track it was on it was probably heading back from Sandringham.

Not EM100, but there is a photo taken recently over at Vicsig of IEV102 with T373 and T377 at Flagstaff. I though diesels were restricted from the city loop? When was the last time a diesel locomotive was in the loop?

I recall T378 and T320 with a set of coaches through the loop in the 1990's on a special from Seymour.  Did that sound nice taking off from Museum Station.

is IEV102 Now EM100?

IEV102 is a converted MTH car that is now used on infrastrucure evaluation runs. Usually sandwiched between 2 of Metro's T class locomotives running in push pull formation.

IEV100 is the new designation for EM100. A purpose built self propelled (diesel) evaluation vehicle used by both Metro and V/Line on the entire Victorian network. Most people still call it EM100.

The EM is a series of Plasser track recording/inspection vehicles (example, EM120, also see parent site). Bachmann also made an HO scale EM80 back in the 1980s (may have even been the late 1970s). IEV100 and IEV102's numbering is coincidental - if MTH101 was converted to a works car instead of MTH102, it would have been IEV101; our EM100 just happened to be called none other than EM100, so it kept its "number" as IEV100.

At 12.45 it trundled through Tatura towards Toolamba. About 1/2 later it headed back towards Echuca.

Victrack must be serious about the upkeep of this line.  Bet it has been a while since the EM100 has been down that line?

Funny thing happened last week.

Was on platform 10 at SSS when iev002 came through, as it was approaching I got a message on my phone and started to take it out of my pocket. One of the guys in the cab must have thought I was taking a picture as he starts gesticulating wildly.

Question is, what's so top secret about a train that travels in broad daylight around the network?

Those photos make me want to put that livery on a Hitachi. I think it has something to do with the slanted front and the dual windscreens. Smile

I spotted IEV 100 three times yesterday.
At 11:50 it was heading from Southern Cross to North Melbourne on one of the Western tracks.
At 12:30 it was going from Tottenham to Sunshine via the higher goods lines - the track closest to the sparked tracks.
At 1:00 it went through Sunbury and it waited for about a minute at the level crossing near the station before it went through.

Said to be self propelled, diesel powered, but there is a lowered pantograph on its roof.  Is it also capable of electric operation, or is the panto disfunctional?
  randomnarwhal Locomotive Driver

The panto is likely for checking overhead voltage / current, and reporting any points where the overhead needs attention
