    Premier Daniel Andrews and Minister for Public Transport Jacinta Allan inspected the model train today, which will be on public display at Birrarung Marr from 9 February.

    The ‘Melbourne, meet your train’ event will be free and feature full access to the train, a virtual reality experience for kids, a public transport information hub, kids’ activity zone, as well as competitions and prizes.

    The event will end with a light display as part of White Night on 17 February, after which the train will be used for ongoing testing and training purposes.

    Over the course of 2017, Victorians provided 2,500 pieces of feedback on the design of the 160-metre-long, seven-carriage train.

    Feedback from accessibility and passenger groups, train drivers and technical experts led to 157 design improvements – including better hand holds, extra priority flip-down seating and improved bike and pram zones.

    Manufacturing of the 65 High Capacity Metro Trains will begin soon at Melbourne’s Newport workshops, and will create 175 of the project’s 1,100 local jobs.
