S Set S146

S Set S146:
Thursday 5th November 2015

S146 has always been a favourite of mine simply because of the carriage it has had on it over the last couple of years.

C3805:
C3805 was the first Double Deck S Set car built by Comeng (Commonwealth Engineering) to enter service.
When i first started gaining knowledge of trains C3805 was on set R18.
R Sets were silver sets built by Comeng & Goninan and were 6 cars in length.
In approx 2011 or 2012 R Sets were being broken up to make 4 car sets, known as S Sets.
This was to increase capacity as 2 S Sets can be coupled to make an 8 car set.
R18 was broken up with 4 cars forming set S146.
In 2012 or 2013 C3805 was removed from S146 and retired.
C3805 is preserved and stored at Broadmeadow.

Now it's 2015, S146 has 2 unique motor cars.. C3013 & C3861.

C3013:
C3013 was built by A. Goninan & Co in Newcastle.
It was one of the spare motor cars stored at Mortdale.
It was used to substitute another motor car when another S Set motor car needed to have repairs done.
C3013 is now part of S146.
