Drivers asked for feedback on Oscar glare trial

Mar 23, 2012Update

The RTBU been also been pursuing RailCorp over the unacceptable levels of glare from the dash of the Oscar for more than 12 months.

As an interim solution ‘dash mats’ were trialled, then several non-reflective/anti-glare paints were investigated as a longer-term solution.

Late last year it was agreed that one particular paint type looked like it could potentially solve the problem.

This paint has now been applied to the cabs on Set H27 for a three-to-six month trial period to assess the paint’s durability and whether drivers believe it solves the glare problem.

Members who operate this train type are urged to provide feedback on the paint’s performance.
