Melbourne also mixes and matches there streetcar manufacturers instead of sticking to a sole manufacturer.
Melbourne uses 1435mm/2.65m/standard curve radii so that's a bit easier to seek tenders on than 1495mm/2.54m/11m curves

Hummm!!!! are we going to see 4476 in service tomorrow, as its sitting on track 2 in the yard and 4475 is currently on 509 in testing??? 4475 has been in testing the last 30+ hours non stop from what I have seen so far. It was out when I went to bed at 2 am and still out at 6:45 am. The few times I have looked today, been up on 512, out on the Queensway or 509.

Now, where are 4477 and 4478 that should be here now, with 4479 supposed to be in transit???

If 4476 does make it out tomorrow, it will be it will be day 13. 4475 is currently at day 25. Then it could be waiting for a service bay to open up for it.

29 days to have 4477-4487 ship to meet Q2 schedule.

4478 is at Leslie Barns.
If 4478, then 4477 should be there as well if 4479 was off loaded today.

One would have to say off hand that 4477 was off loaded Monday and 4478 Tuesday.

4475 was back out late today doing more testing. Its currently out on the Queensway.

Getting arrival dates these days is hard to come by.

4478 is tracking

I maybe wrong, but where 4475 is sitting in the yard now, could be finally ready for service, considering it was out all day and still at 3:30 am today when I went to bed. It was in the service bay at 11 am when I got a chance to look at it.

4475 just left the Barns as an in service 512 after 28 days

4478 left the Barns just after 12 am for testing on 510 and the fastest a car that has seen testing this year. Could we see the return to 8-10 from arrival to in service again??

4477 & 4479 not tracking yet. 4478 return to the Barns a few hours ago.

A rough ride on a late 509 even holding onto something.
