Additional 27 VLocity diesel railcars to be built in Victoria

The Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Melbourne Chamber of Commerce are pleased that an additional 27 VLocity diesel multiple unit railcars will be built in Victoria.

We welcome the recent announcement that technology leader Bombardier Transportation will build and deliver the railcars for Transport for Victoria and the Victorian State Government.

This brings the total fleet to 264 railcars in passenger service by 2019.

These award-winning trains will be manufactured locally in Dandenong, supporting over 600 jobs in the region.
