Together, creating new

for Dubbo and Regional NSW



Momentum Trains

In February 2019, the NSW Government awarded a contract to Momentum Trains to deliver the Regional Rail Fleet Project.

Momentum Trains is an international consortium comprising CAF, UGL Rail Services, Pacific Partnerships, CAF Investment Projects and DIF Infrastructure V Coöperatief.

Momentum Trains will design, build, finance and maintain the new regional rail fleet and a new purpose-built maintenance facility in Dubbo. NSW TrainLink will operate the new regional fleet with the first trains to be progressively introduced from 2023.

About the Project

Momentum Trains is working with the NSW Government to replace the ageing NSW regional rail fleet of XPT, XPLORER and Endeavour trains, which are up to 37 years old. The new trains will improve safety, amenities, accessibility and reliability for customers who travel from Sydney to many regional centres in NSW, as well as Canberra, Melbourne and Brisbane.

There are three main elements to the Regional Rail Project. Momentum Trains and its Consortium Partners will deliver the following:

Register for project opportunities

Expression of Interest procurement opportunities for businesses and suppliers are advertised by each Momentum Trains Consortium Partner (CAF, UGL and CPB) using the Industry Capability Network (ICN) Gateway. We encourage any business interested in opportunities on the Regional Rail Project, for either the construction of the Dubbo Maintenance Facility (CPB Contractors), train completion work (CAF) or maintenance phase (UGL) to register with the Industry Capability Network (ICN) and access available Expressions of Interest (EOI).


Employment and Training

Momentum Trains is committed to maximising employment opportunities on the Regional Rail Project in regional New South Wales, both directly and through its subcontractors and supply chain. A range of skills will be required throughout construction, train completion work and maintenance phases.

To support the development of workforce skills, there will be several initiatives/programs such as:

Apprenticeships and Traineeships

The Regional Rail Project will offer a number of apprenticeships, traineeships and skills development opportunities.

Undergraduates, graduate
and work experience opportunities

The Regional Rail Project will also offer graduate placement and work experience opportunities.
