Saw that run 62 is actually being run by S105+125 today, which is weird as Anytrip is still showing load info for this train.

Got a ride on B1 today. They still haven't fixed the super loud announcements and the bug with the screens displaying nothing.

Just saw B5 travel through Redfern platform 8 under test, doors briefly opened and closed before it continued on.

On B4 today, loud announcements have been fixed, however the screens still have the timeout issue (screens sometimes go blank). This time the guard noticed and fixed it (by manually playing an announcement). Also an issue with one end of N1804 having all doors broken. Intercarriage door was locked open and external doors were turned off.

The Bs seem to be running on T2 Parramatta services of an afternoon. Passed three operating down services between Parra and Newtown yesterday afternoon.

B5 was on the eastern departure road, B6 was in the western sidings.

Reminds me of Japan, where a lot of trains were colour coded for the lines they run on. Used to be full paint jobs, but more likely just striping on SS or Aluminium these days.

Finally caught one of the new B sets! Does anyone know why the DVA is so loud on them?

The guard should be able to control the volume level.

Send in a complaint.

HI! THE ANNOUNCEMENTS ARE THIS LOUD SO YOU KNOW YOU'VE GOT A BRAND NEW TRAIN WITH WORKING SPEAKERS AND NOT MUFFLED TANGARA ONES. :?:

Loud announcements still only fixed on B4. All other sets still have very loud announcements.
Also, they appeared to have fixed the timeout issue on the screens.
