Also, what with RP's failure during the launch of the new timetable, has anyone any information on whether more than set 11 is in service now? Youtubers all appear to have dodged this one completely, Vicsig has reverted to lagging seriously behind what is happening in the real world (in all aspects except trams) and I haven't been able to find any other sources to fill the gap.
From what I can tell and based on information/speculation from others, set 11 is the only one that is considered to be "in service" and the only one accepted to be part of Metro's Rolling Stock fleet. However it is still primarily being used for driver training with two extra services that appear on the PTV app being the runs specifically for it to take passengers that are prone to being cancelled at last minute's (literally) notice. Hope this addresses your question Neil.
In other news:
* In January, HCMT sets were testing on the Belgrave Line (mentioned in previous post(s)) and also for the first time (to my knowledge) on the Mernda Line (only up to Reservoir though)
* Set 24 has been transferred to Pakenham East on the 15th? of January 2021 and Set 25 followed on the 28th of January, both were towed by two locomotives with a power van between the locos and HCMT
