Return of the Bendigo Hitachis, August 2006

After their withdrawal from suburban service in Melbourne, in February 2004 four 3-car Hitachi sets were transferred to the Bendigo North Workshops and stored unsecured in the open. In 2006 stripped of parts, and with broken windows and covered with graffiti, they were moved back to Melbourne by El Zorro using Y145 and S302 in the middle of the night of August 30th. Here they are upon arrival the next morning at Newport Workshops.
