NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has unveiled the first new Sydney Growth Trains double deck passenger train. The new B-Sets are an upgrade of the current Waratahs and feature improved passenger information, lighting, comfort and safety.
IDA worked with TfNSW to develop a livery design that gives the B-Sets a fresh new look over the previous generation Waratah A-Sets. The new livery better supports the TfNSW brand by giving the train a cleaner, more modern appearance with the livery design linking the various window elements along the side of the train for a more consistent graphic.
24 new 8 car sets have been ordered with the first set now in the process of testing and commissioning. The first trains are due to go into service in mid-2018, with further roll outs continuing into early 2019.
