The three successful applicants are Regional Futures, led by Downer, Bombardier Consortium and Momentum Trains, led by CAF.

Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance said the replacement of the regional fleet would deliver huge benefits for public transport customers across the state.

Transport for NSW aims to award a contract for the new fleet in 2019 with the first trains anticipated to be on the tracks in the early 2020s.

The new trains will be operated by NSW TrainLink, the NSW Government owned regional rail and coach service provider.
