Waratah Train Preparation
RailCorp has advised the RTBU that it wishes to review the current Waratah Train preparation procedure, with the ultimate goal of reducing the overall time allowable for this procedure.
Members will be aware that this process has already occurred for Silver sets and Tangara type trains – the result has been the 52 minute preparation now in use.
Consultation remains ongoing with Millennium and OSCAR train regarding preparation procedures. The timing for these procedures is yet to be agreed.
Once again, by reducing the requirements of these procedures, RailCorp reduces the time required and gains more drivers “footplate” time.
