No EMUs on Caboolture or Ipswich lines today (18/04). In fact, I noticed a general lack of EMUs on most of where I went, as well as older stock on Ipswich/Cabo (only one lone SMU 220 pair, 235/234, was in cycle). Not sure if that's a symptom of a dwindling EMU supply or not.
  Skyblue1 Deputy Commissioner

I wouldn’t think so, I have dayz at Milton where I see 1 or 2 older stock and the rest is 2nd gen IMU/SMUs and NGRs.
Last 2 days at Milton have been far better as I will post now. I guess maintenance could be something, there’s endless times going past Mayne depot it could be 3-4 sets of EMUs, another day 2nd gen IMU/SMU and another day 1st gen IMU/SMU, hard to tell.

EMU 59 got a new partner, 32, and is the only EMU operating Ipswich line this Anzac Day. Also noted an IMU 120 (didn't get numbers since EMU windows were in the way), and 57 coupled to an unidentified set.

Seems to have been there for a long time. Does it simply rest there during off-peak hours or is it stored?
  Skyblue1 Deputy Commissioner

@Graham4405
31 has been there a year this month. It’s stored with electrical faults as far as I’m aware, probs why 30 has been running around in its place.
