Seen through from soneone's facebook account that there were certain sets being refurbished. Photo was taken for evidence according to date on the post. (Facebook user name SmrTrain Lovur)

The following sets has been upgraded with new signalling systems:
Feb: V18, V25
Mar: V30
Apr: V07, V36
May: V05, V12

Another suggestion: How about adding another tricks to spot which is the front look of the upgraded train which looks quite different from the others one?

Hmm... Maybe something like this?

"How to spot an upgraded/modified C810 train?
1. A pair of seats removed and converted to perched seats at each ends of the vehicle.
2. Vehicle number is underlined on the exterior of the vehicle (e.g. "18")."

Well, I heard from somewhere that V15 is also refurbished... But I haven't seen it on passenger service yet...

So only 16 Crystal Movers will be refurbished/modified? Not all in the long run?

Anyway, has anyone here seen 2 SKPGLRT trains coupled together?

^ Not now at the moment Smile

Actually, come to think of it, I agree that it will be better off if all the 41 existing vehicles are modified. Then, together with the 16 additional vehicles, which makes a total of 57 singles vehicles, 28 pairs of two-car trains can be formed and put on service, with 7 pairs on each loop of the SKPG Line during the peak periods. That should solve the crowd problem that the LRT users (mainly residents) faced. 

Besides, with Sengkang and Punggol having more and more developments coming their way, having 28 pairs of trains serving the four loops will also adress and solve the issue of a possible "BOOM" in pax numbers over the next 10-15 years.

They probably plan to only upgrade in the future. I don't think having so little trains is going to be enough in the future when all the lines are up and running

V05 upgraded, perch seat spotted
Train REP: None at the moment
Bus (if there is any such rep) REP: TIB829J

LRT rep: None at the moment
--------------------------------

If either one of these reps have been taken, contact me as I'm lazy to search
through the WHOLE list of users with train/bus (if there is) rep(s).



P.S. I'm removing all my train reps and replacing 542D for 829J for bus rep as I have lost interest in trains. I might not be coming back often.
