300M-2007T-299M came up from Blackburn this afternoon, due at FSS at 17:09.

I don't know whether the trailing car was 278M or 273M. Either way, it's stated destination was General Motors.

Looks like its Hitachi season out on the Hurstbridge line at the moment.

Friday I went home on the 5:37 from Clifton Hill on 285M
Monday night same service was also ran by a Hitachi, didn't catch a number though
This mornings Watsonia 7:49 to Flinders was serviced by the set with 275M which was trailing at the time.

Anytime Metro would like to put the X'Traps back out this way, that would be great, I miss the flying leap on the way home just before Alphinton Sad

Hitachi's seem to be very neglected on the South Morang Line, not much activity, though they've been on the Hurstbridge Line for a few days this week.

Despite some South Morang's form Hurstbridge, Eltham or Greensborough trains and vise versa.

Just feels rather odd that since they've been venturing around the Hurstbridge line and not South Morang.

Cheers, Justin!

To add to my list, 285M passed Watsonia around 6:37pm heading Up.  Looks like it was doing a dead run though.

The 5:53 Arrival into South Morang this evening was a Hitachi, didn't get the motor numbers but this train would've shunted off to Epping Yards tonight.

Cheers, Justin.

285M...273M ran to Hurstbridge in the off-peak this afternoon passing Eltham on the Up at 14:21. It then formed an Alamein service.

278M...299M Ran to Greensborough tonight, and presumably stabled at Macleod.

Yesterday 288M----275M went through Mont Albert at 3:58 pm.
It must have been the to 3:28 to Belgrave which was running a couple of minutes late.
I noticed that the second (or possibly third) door on 288M's left was out of order.
I wonder how long it'll take to get fixed.
