Any news about SMART #103? There was a thread here earlier, but now it's gone. :(

Steve- What do you mean by the words "it was getting negative"?

"engine trouble" has been the questionable issue with these DMU's and as a mechanical engineer I was interested in knowing more about what caused the trouble.

Do you have any more info from SMART or the press?

Thx Richard

Yes Dave what happened to that thread?  I'd posted a question about the engine failures in the Nippon Sharyo DMU's to it yesterday but gone today.  There used to be a member with the name NipponSharyofan here but haven't heard from them in a long time.  

Do you remember the name of the original poster?  I sure hope we don't our BP person back on this site.

response from SMART “I don't know about 4/2 & 4/3 but on 4/4 they had engine trouble and had to take that car out of service. On 4/5, they swapped out one of the third cars for maintenance”

I deleted it as my name was on it and it was getting negative.
