There's only 2 months still it starts to get warm (November). I don't think all the S sets will be gone by then?

I doubt We’d be stuck with the S sets, The B sets have been testing and we’re talking MONTHS now so the first should be in service by the next month or two

Assuming there are no issues of course...

They are based on the proven A sets and I doubt the systems are very different.

Sets 1, 2, 3 and possibly 4 should be available for service by end of September. IIRC, when the As were being delivered, they were allocated roster positions, but older sets filled in until an A was available.


To be fair, they did say the first would enter service in June. June. We are now September, not a single new train in service, aww. But no hurry, nothing exciting remember, they're just more identical Waratahs with some stickers on the outside

I thought June was when deliveries were promised, not a service date.

They can delay roll outs as long as they wish if it means a reprieve for the S sets!!!!

The first new Waratah train will undergo three months of testing before it is pressed into service in June on lines in Sydney's south west,


Nope, meant to enter service, June. They are late. But not an issue, will just enjoy the S sets a bit longer, they have character at least :D

Surely Transport Minister Constance will go out & promote the launch of B series train alongside with Premier Gladys. Government needs some good news.

Some of them only on certain days. Looks like 57-59 are weekends only. eg https://anytrip.com.au/trip/2018-10-01/ ... 8.52818275

They can simply issue STN to roster S sets in place of B sets in the interim.

Starts today.

It is providing additional selected passenger services. Very cautious approach. There might be concern by not putting them onto regular rosters like I believe they did with the As.

Maybe bus destos should employ that technology instead of persistence with visible led dots that have been around well beyond 30 years.
Sydney Trains still using slow scrolling for info that may waste time for passengers that only have seconds to check info before having to make a decision.
It'd be nice of the doors were matching orange as well. Hi visible vests and shirts come in orange too. I guess ST have a habit of religiously holding onto current practises and not trying to constantly find better ways of doing things.
