High Capacity Metro Train testing on the Belgrave line

On the evening of 12 March 2020 HCMT set 2 was transferred to Upper Ferntree Gully behind P18 and T385 in preparation for brake testing on the Belgrave line, between Upper Ferntree Gully and Upwey. During January 2021 another testing program was completed on the line, with HCMT sets 3 and 10 testing whether a HCMT set could push and pull a failed classmate up the 1 in 30 grade.
