N3 has become the second set N set and first on BG to be repainted in VLP4 PT>. Returning yesterday as standard N set ACN9-BRN47-BN8. BZN258 and BTN254 are both running as D and E cars in VN14.

Two BTN cars (254 and 264) while three BZNs are yet to return (258, 262 and 265). BTN254 and BZN258 would be that last to return I think.

BTN251 (now 60 years old, making it the oldest Z car) and BZN276 have just arrived at Spencer Street ex overhaul and new bogies.

Don't know if anyone got to see the V sets on display at the Liverpool expo? But to me they look really really nice, paint work is pin sharp and the stainless steel tone looks spot on. I do however th ...

Yes, VL60 is at West Melbourne.

But of more interest maybe BZN265 is also back from Newport, While ex SG BN2 (SN1) has been gauge converted and sent to Newport.

So do they have the preserved cars? I had a look on the SETS web page seems rather un-active.

Sorry if it's been said before, but the preserved cars are a part of a group or? Is the SETS group still going?

3 car Vlocity VL40 now in PTV  just seen in the railcar sidings Spencer Street.

N19 now running as VN19 with BZN273, BTN264 as cars 'C' and 'D'.

BCZ257 is also back for service, still with ex AZ seats and VLP Mk2 paint work.

K99 being even more interesting than any other K Set on this run - K99 is made up of two of the former Newcastle 2-car sets.

I can tell you that K & AB Rail have nothing to do with AR Ball rollingstock maintenance in any way, shape or form.

Ah ok, wild guess as I know both 'K' and AR Ball wer ...

Well I'd say K & AB Rail would have something to do with AR Ball rollingstock maintenance. With the K being another interested party. That no doubt has association with SRHC...

Just keep getting mo ...
