X'Trapolis upgrade transfer, October 2018

On 30 October 2018 T385 and T386 with power van BVDY52 transferred X'Trapolis train 31M–1316T–32M and 923M–1662T–924M from Newport Workshops via Sunshine and North Geelong to the Alstom plant at Ballarat North for modification works. The initial movement from Newport Workshops to the GEB sidings at Sunshine was push pull, due to an inability to reverse the train at Newport, with T386 being shunted onto the front of the train to lead it west to Ballarat.
