Suburban Multiple Unit (200 Series) (Citytrain)


Suburban Multiple Unit (200 Series) (Citytrain)

Walkers-ABB Suburban Multiple Units (200 Series) are a model of electric multiple unit used by Citytrain in South East Queensland Australia.

History

The SMU 200 series EMU were originally introduced in 1994 due to a rollingstock shortage after an increase in Citytrain services. There are twelve in total and were built by Walkers Ltd. Maryborough and ABB Transportation, Switzerland.

Operation

The trains are numbered SMU201-SMU212 for Mk I units (200 Series). All units have driving cabs at both ends and have buttons to open the doors as opposed to handles for the EMU sets. They are all interoperable with 220 Series Suburban Multiple Units.

Timetable

The trains serve all suburban lines in the network. However they can be regularly found operating interurban services on the Nambour and Gympie North Line and the Gold Coast Line due to a shortage of interurban rollingstock.
