Barilaro Promises New Regional Trains

Deputy Premier John Barilaro has announced that the replacement of the entire regional train fleet, a move tipped to be a big boost for regional jobs.

Mr Barilaro says the fleet replacement program will deliver unprecedented levels of comfort and service for regional rail customers, and more convenient timetabling.

XPT, XPLORER and Endeavour trains will all be included in the project.

Expressions of interest will soon be issued for the design, construction and maintenance of the new trains, and a new maintenance facility, which is set to be built in Dubbo.
