EM class

EM 100 is not technically a locomotive but it is included here because it fits into the victorian locomotive numbering scheme.It is actually a track recording vehicle for testing the quality of the rails it runs on. Every three months it is sheduled to run over every piece of the broard gauge system in victoria. The classing comes from the model of vehicle it is (Builders model EM100 meaning Evaluating Machine and 100 for the rated speed) and has been classed as such. NSW also owned a simmilar vehicle (EM120 model) and had it classed ML-039. EM100 is restricted to 80km/h on RFR (Reagional Fast Rail) trackage due to no TPWS being fitted to the vehicle. In mid 2013 EM 100 was renumbered IEV 100 and seems to have come under Metro operations or ownership. The renumbering is inline with the Metro evaluation vehicle IEV 102 (an Ex MTH car) with IEV standing for Infrastructure Evaluation Vehicle.
