Quote from: SurfRail on June 26, 2012, 16:58:06 PMThis will really only work if they can get a second TSD and isolate the fleet between the 2.I wonder if they considered adding a third door per carriage? Likely a very expensive task to do - involves around 1,200 new doors and sets of door mechanisms, cutting into steel, reconfiguring interiors etc. Probably leave all the IMUs and the SMU 260s as they are (and the ICEs, goes without saying), so it would only be EMUs and 200/220 SMUs and therefore largely isolated to the suburban network. However, I expect dwell times could really be cut with such a move.
Quote from: ozbob on June 26, 2012, 15:33:53 PMI think this will mean a few seats removed near the doors, as for EMU 06.I don't think they will touch the IMUs.
Quote from: HappyTrainGuy on June 26, 2012, 17:23:15 PMNope. No new doors would be installed on the trains due to the trains design (structuraly, components, ac ducting, cabs etc). Basically the whole train/generation fleet would have to be rebuilt from scratch. EMUs especially. SMU200s still have the door light panels (a drawing with lights indicated for each door/ac with a maximum consist of 6 cars) above the drivers head. The reason for NGR was to phase out the EMUs so they wouldn't be subject to any rebuilds.

They lock by themselves when they close as a child safety device so to say but anyone can push in the button and then turn the handle to open the door where as ICE/TT doors are still only able to be opened from the cabs unless the big red button is pressed.One ICE set was sent up north for driver training but I think it might have returned. 2 power pairs are still operational and ready to go but the others lack a partner due to a couple on going gremlins.
QuoteBombay Express?Posted by: 4bc.com.au | 29 August, 2012 - 10:52 AMPublic transport fare rises of 15 per cent a year have put patronage at a four-year lowTrains from the Gold Coast are already crammed, and there are plans to remove seats to create more room! So will this worsen the "Bombay Express"? Mark and Victoria from 4BC Breakfast ask Robert Dow from Rail Back on Track.
Quote from: BrizCommuter on September 26, 2012, 18:53:56 PMMore handholds would increase capacity without removing seats. SE Queensland "full" standing densities are very low compared to other suburban rail systems due to lack of things to hold onto.
