Enfield yard ready for “S” set arrivals
As a part of the rollout of the Waratah train, a portion of the Enfield Freight Yard has been redeveloped to accommodate “S” Sets that will be removed from operation service and replaced by the Waratah train.
These “S” Sets will be kept at an “operational ready” state by rotating back to Flemington Car sheds on a regular basis to undergo maintenance cycles.
Once delivery of the Waratah train escalates, this facility will also be utilised as an overflow storage location for Waratahs prior to entering revenue service.
Considerable work has been undertaken at this location to bring it up to an acceptable standard with little work remaining to be done prior to commissioning and then utilisation.
