There is also the VIP Special 2 car S set which was used on the Richmond Electrification in 17 August 1991. I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) cars C3823 (a Mk1 motor) and driver trailer D4051 led th ...

Very interesting. But I think we are straying off topic. Either I'm getting confused with the State Rail Authority and the South Australian Railways. Which one are you referring to?

When I was looking at the workshop plans for Diesel and Electric Locomotives I came across these two "Mini Railmotor" plans.

Does anyone know about these proposed carriages?

All I know is that ...

Hey again,

I just need some info about the freight stock that ran in Ropes Creek during the 1960's until the line's closure. I saw a Sydney Trains Vlogs video on some abandoned freight hoppers on p ...

C3802's pantograph was more like a half - diamond pantograph. This might not be right, but I think I saw a small - resolution image in Volume 3 of 'Comeng: A History of Commonwealth Engineering' on Go ...

Hi all,

Does anyone have any photographs the Pantograph of Tulloch DD Prototype car C3802?

It stands out from the other cars by having what looks to be an early development of the Tangara pantog ...

I've just looked at the HET news page, and it claims a list of missing electrical parts of C3814 has been sent to Flemington. It also claims that once these parts are fitted, the car (and T4150) will  ...

If HET are going to make a heritage set out of these cars, shouldn't they purchase C3840? Or have they already made preparations? And are HET going to buy another trailer, or are they leaving it as a  ...

I've seen photos of C3840 from inside Petersham Training College and it turns out the other side is unpainted (other than the yellow doors). Will they scrap this car once the other S sets are withdraw ...

C3840 is still at Petersham, making another of the last Mk1 cars not scrapped.

And is it likely that any of those supposed candidates will be saved? They all do their significance. Also, are any ex ...

C3801 was the first of the Tulloch Prototype Cars, but it was rebuilt as T4797 and was scrapped. C3804 is closest to original condition, and I'm pretty sure that T4799 (ex - C3803) is in storage somew ...

Where are they?

Posted 27 Jan 2017 16:40 in Sydney Suburban by NSWGR_C3813

Since the first S sets were withdrawn, it's not known which cars will be saved. So far I know that three have been stored at Broadmeadow. These are:

C3805: The first S set car built.

T4150: One  ...

Posted 27 Jan 2017 16:30 in Sydney Suburban by NSWGR_C3813

That set (Now T20) is a likely candidate for future preservation by either HET or SETS. A train of that significance is one I would scared to touch. (Not really!) What I mean is that I'd rather let it ...

Don't you mean the M set doors?

Hi all,

On this thread I will show my plan to restore a Tangara to it's original condition. So the plan is to do the following:

1. Put new covers on doors to look like original.

2. Replace v ...

Posted 23 Jan 2017 17:45 in Sydney Suburban by NSWGR_C3813

Ok, so both part of the door mechanism and the doors themselves have been replaced. But can anyone tell me if the original doors still exist? If they don't, would you guys be able to help figure out h ...

Posted 20 Jan 2017 13:50 in Sydney Suburban by NSWGR_C3813

The NEW doors are made to be kick proof, as in many cases the bottom panels on the old doors always got kicked out by those stupid vandals always out to destroy public transport. Sydney Trains were si ...

Posted 20 Jan 2017 07:04 in Sydney Suburban by NSWGR_C3813

Hi all,

Does anyone know whether the original Tangara doors still exist? If so, where can I find them?

Ok, so the pattern car is C3101, right?

Would you be able to look at your copy? I've read through my copy of The Leeds Forge Cars, but it doesn't mention the aftermath of the pattern car, despite the photographs. According to the book, the  ...

But what number was it?

I am unsure though if it was fully assembled at the Leeds Forge. Logically speaking, the cars were made in sections to make it easy to ship. If they were to fully assemble  ...

Hi all,

I recently read the book about the original 50 All Steel Red Rattlers that were built at Leeds Forge. The book was titled "Sydney's Suburban Standards - The Leeds Forge Power Cars C3101 - 3 ...

Such a simple idea yet it hasn't been added yet.

Hi all,

Here is a thread to discuss whether prototype S set Car No. C 3804 can be restored. So argue away!
