The first of the new Sydney Trains Waratah B-Sets arrived in Sydney today. 24 eight car sets have been ordered and will be used to replace all of the ageing and non-airconditioned S sets. They will run on the T2, T3 and T8 lines from June.
The Waratah B-Set trains will improve customer comfort and accessibility including features such as:
Improved air conditioning with advanced temperature control.
More than 90 Internal and external CCTV cameras and two customer help points per car
Improved accessibility including priority seating, wheelchair spaces and hearing aid loops.
High definition customer information screens to provide journey and safety information.
Improved interior LED lighting.
All 24 sets will be in service by late 2019, with an option for a further 45 delivered between 2020 and 2022 if the government is satisfied with the trains performance.
