It might help, so long as they have spare locos and don't run it in a 4 car configuration.
Without the pantos, they can glue chairs on the roof and have a lower middle, upper and alfresco level. Of course the chairs can be glued down facing backwards, maybe.
They could do worse if we gave them the Oscars.
In addition to having the doors in the wrong place, DB double deck stock would too wide for use here, too tall for use here, use the wrong electrical system and use the wrong signalling systems. Pretty well everything about them is wrong!Can you post an example? Thanks.
If the loading gauges here were large enough to take European designs, a better starting point would be Dutch double deck designs which are already built for high level platforms and DC electrification.
Will be interesting to see if the V sets are outright sold for scrap only like the S sets or if they will offer them for sale? I ask due to the fact that a couple of the DCM power cars, most of which were retired in 2011 - 2012 were sold. 2 were sold and road hauled to the NSW Police Academy at Goulburn from Chullora
