3012

Postby citadis203 » Thu Feb 22, 2018 6:08 pm

This article from Leon Byner on FiveAA regarding security concerns unearthed an image of 3012 in a mysterious red livery (presumably trying to copy that of the 4000-class).

Firstly, it looks terrible on the 3000 class and does a great job to show the age of the railcar.
Secondly, I have heard reports that this railcar has been spotted in the early hours of the morning on the Dry Creek- Salisbury section of the Gawler line at high speeds. Put 1+1 together but purely speculative; could we be looking at the pilot study vehicle for an electric railcar conversion?

I prefer the red fronted vehicles and it's not simply because they're newer. Just reckon they look better.

Don't think the 3000s will be converted anytime soon, but I daresay DPTI may be trying to go for a uniform livery on the railcars. Given the Citadis trams are also in the red livery, maybe the Flexity's will eventually get a new paint job.
