Results January 2018's MDBF decreased to 890 kilometres, which continues to be below the target of 6,000 kilometres. Reliability of the ALRV fleet continues to be poor due to the age (+ 35 years) and the condition of the fleet. Inclement weather in January further impacted the reliability of this fleet. Analysis The MDBF from January 2018 decreased marginally from the previous period's (December 2017) reliability figure of 1,177 kilometres. This can be attributed to the continuing poor weather conditions. In these poor conditions, the ALRV experienced significant electrical, pneumatic and sander problems In comparison to January 2017's MDBF of 1,528 kilometres, January 2018's result was also slightly lower. Age, condition of vehicles and more severe weather conditions in 2018 contributed to the decline. Action Plan Minor rebuilds have allowed the ALRVs to continue past their original life cycle. Due to inherent design problems and reliability issues of this vehicle type, the current plan is to accelerate decommissioning of this fleet. The use of these vehicles in limited service will also reduce unreliable service. With the decommissioning of the more problematic vehicles, reduction in service and improving weather condition, staff expect the reliability trend to stabilize.whats the status of the ALRV refurbishment program?
What's happening with 4470? Should have been shipped by now, but haven't seen a confirmation. Anyone have any idea on how many cars are nearing completion and could potentially arrive by end of Q1?
