It was offloaded Tuesday.  Two deliveries within a few days - maybe things are ramping up?

Siemens mentioned that new cars are supposed to be coming in more frequently.

Anyone know of any S200's out there today during midday ?

No midday keys.  These trains are still generally only dispatched on AM or PM extras on weekdays.

I have seen the odd one during midday and was hoping one was out today as a friend is in town today hoping to ride one. Guess he will have to watch during the PM peak today.

Figured out via another source that there is a Key that comes out after 1300 which is probably the key I have seen an S200 consist on during midday.

Saw 2410 parked on its own at Tuscany Station this afternoon around 12, but haven't seen any revenue trains in the mid-day that I recall.

Single car training trains continue to run mid day

 

S200s are only being dispatched for the AM and PM rush hours by virtue of the fact that for the time being, they want the trains dispatched out of Anderson and want them to return to Anderson every night. All 12 all day keys either come out or return to Tuscany or Haysboro so assigning those keys to those blocks of work is out of the question. The AM Rush keys are usually out between 04:00-09:00 and the PM rush keys are anywhere from 13:30-02:00.

Has the water damage been found on a small number of units, or the whole fleet?

The main issue was found in 2 trains. They determined it could happen to any car though. A secondary water issue cropped up upon further investigation.

They were working on preventative maintenance all weekend on non damaged units.
