For anyone interested there's a bit about QUBE's E3000E3B.
The southbound QUBE train went through Cardiff today at 11:21 hauled by 1 green RL, 1 green 48, 1103 facing forward and 1 QUBE RL. Has anyone sighted an 1100 leading on an 'in service' run yet?
Certainly was, it was good to see the CF,GWU and CEY out and it was CF4405 behind the GWU. Now back in W.A as of this morning after 3 states, was good to catch up briefly in Melbourne.
Any photos of the GWU loco?
Word is the cab windows are too high and blokes can't see out of them and thus they're restricted to second units etc.
Sounds like they need to add booster seats so they can see out.
Are these locomotives into revenue service as yet?
Spoke to a POTA crew the other day and he did bring up these locomotives. In his view they are too noisy in the cab and the seats have to be jacked up just too see out of the window with your feet off the ground.
The October photo competition is now open for submissions!
