Lester Pasley (Group Member of Mount Druitt Commuters Improvement Group Inc.) has kindly provided his journey on the last "C" Set Trains  and the events that happened, which ended up in a positive result:

 It was a good run and we did two trips to Cronulla including one on the oldest car in the CityRail fleet, C 3805, which entered service in 1972.  It was borrowed from Hornsby depot specially for the night.  Unfortunately, 3805 was attacked by graffiti vandals at Woolooware, just one stop from Cronulla.  As 3805 was full of rail fans armed with cameras, they got photos of the vandals and when the Police met the train at Cronulla, they viewed the photos and identified the ringleader of the vandals.
