The Harris trains were the first steel-bodied Electric Multiple Unit train to operate on the suburban railway network of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. They were introduced in 1956 by the Victorian Railways, and last operated in 1988, although a number of the carriages were converted for other uses and are still operating. They were named after Norman Charles Harris, Chairman of Commissioners of the Victorian Railways between 1940 and 1950.

“You overfed the boy, Maam. You raised an artificial spirit in the lad, unbecoming to his station on life. This would never have happened if you kept him on gruel.”
—Vernon Harris (c. 1910)
