NSW Police Academy V Set Carriages

Hi everyone.

On Wednesday 26th and Thursday 27th July 2017 V Set Carriages DCM8022 & DCM8027 were road hauled from Chullora to the NSW Police Academy in Goulburn.

DCM8027 was first to go in the early hours of Wednesday Morning.
DCM8022 went in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Each night the carriages left Chullora just after midnight.
Arriving at Goulburn at roughly 2:30am.

Here is some brief history on each of the carriages.

DCM8022 was retired from service in October 2011.
This carriage seemingly had a pretty clean life with no significant events occurring apart from this transfer of course.

DCM8027 was part of set V13 and was retired from service in July 2013 along with therest of the set following an incident in the Blue Mountains suburb of Medlow Bath where a tree landed on the top deck of the lead car of V13. The lead car was DCM8028.
DCM8027 was the fourth position carriage.
The tree fell as a result of strong winds.

These two carriages will now be used for training purposes at a scenario railway station called Rossiville which was constructed within the NSW Police Academy in Goulburn.
