Cross-Couplements Spottings - fourarms97 - 02 July 2011

Cross-Couplements Spottings
  • It is usually due to 2 separate trains undergoing maintenance, where both trains have not completely finished their maintenance, and thus one half is coupled with one half from the other train such that enough trains are being deployed for the morning or evening peak hours.

  • It happens when the other set is having problems and needs to be cross-coupled for further investigation.

  • Other theories suggest that cross-couplements could have been a result of carelessness on the part of depot workers, however this is unlikely.

RE: Cross-Couplements Spottings - SBS8300H - 03 July 2011

RE: Cross-Couplements Spottings - SBS5183Z - 03 July 2011

If any of the new 151As are not out for service, 040/058 may have to be used. I just got a feeling that 040/058 may be out tmr. But high chance will do Yishun Bound, followed by X-over or full day
