785M & friends now has the reduced seating layout and the deep clean. Looks like a brand new train inside.

I am currently riding 301M-1001T-302M which has been refurbished, including new handles
I am extremely disappointed because I never got the chance to go to Bundoora in an A class :evil:

Your comment about 475M and 476M being reunited would fit better in th Chopper sightings thread.
Some questions regarding that:
- Do you have any idea why this happened?
- What happened with 697M and 698M
- Which trailer was used: 1088T or 1199T?
