Scrapping Melbourne’s 4D train

What is it I hear you ask?

The 4D train! Where the 4D stands for "Double Deck Development and Demonstration." It was built in the early 1990’s as a prototype double decker train for Melbourne, based on a Sydney design. It was plagued with problems, and suffered frequent breakdowns. As a result it was mothballed by the early 2000’s.
