XTrapolis transfer - February 2010

T413 transferred brand new XTrapolis set 5M-1303T-6M and 7M-1304T-8M from Ballarat to Newport, along with the usual power van GVDY 52Y. So new that it had no identifying marks (other than 'unit 3' and 'unit 4' taped in the windows) the set had been taken directly from the docks to Alstom Ballarat to fix up the floor, the interior fitout was also carried out.
