City Rail A Set

City Rail A Set

The CityRail A set or Waratah is a class of electric multiple unit trains operated by CityRail in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. The train was named Waratah by the NSW Government after the flower of the same name, which is the state's floral emblem.

The design is based on the M set and is the largest rolling stock order in Australia's history. An option existed to extend the order but in March 2013 the government indicated it would not take this up. The 626 carriages will replace most of the 498 non-air conditioned S set carriages and provide additional capacity for passenger and network growth. Delivery commenced in July 2011 and is expected to be completed in 2014.
