3 EMU sets have been in Mayne Yard today - initially 17 & 53 and 32 & 57 (in order North-south, replacing 236 & 248 from the past week). In the afternoon 32 & 57 were replaced with 43 & 31.
Despite spending an extended amount of time at Roma St to try to get more sightings, unfortunately this morning was full of S/IMUs (and those NGRs) instead. Out of the 25 trains sighted, only 3 were of the old fleet (12%, when they should technically still be making up about 20-25% of the total).

Today:
20 & 15 on Ferny Grove run at Bowen Hills
41 & 19 on Ferny Grove run at Roma St

I’ve also noticed the EMU sightings are slowly getting less and less now, especially now the Cleveland line is now NGR operated too.

Only the second day of operation of 700's on the Cleveland line ( seems to be 2 regular sets ), the missing class to date appears to be the early 200's, but maybe pure coincidence.

The amount of EMUs through Milton has dwindled quite a lot so I’m assuming there could be standard sets in storage somewhere like Banyo and Elimbah.

Another drama on the trip home yesterday as a guy on a bike fell off the platform at Sunshine in front of NGR720. He was pulled out by the emergency services and taken to hospital. I ended up getting roarers 103 & 108 to Redcliffe 45 mins later. Driver very shaken.

Anyway, sightings for yesterday.
