The new fleet has smart air-conditioning that automatically adjusts according to temperature and the number of customers aboard, efficient LED lighting, and more comfortable, durable seating.

Waratahs have improved accessibility and security features including 32 Passenger Help Points, hearing-aid loops and CCTV monitoring the entire train.

The NSW Government has upgraded power to allow for the Waratahs to start services on the Western Line and new substations have been built at Yagoona, Warwick Farm, Toongabbie and Campbelltown.

NSWS Minister for Transport Gladys Berejiklian today released deployment details of Waratah trains.
