On Thursday August 17, Transport for NSW and Asset Management Council successfully hosted the Auburn Maintenance Centre technical site tour.
The Auburn Maintenance Centre is a train depot that is responsible for the maintenance of the Sydney Trains A set fleet operated by Downer Rail. It was an excellent opportunity to view and get up to date with this amazing facility.
Downer Rail facilitated the tour and walked participants around the maintenance building which was about 200m long and 80m wide, including 1,600 square metres of office and amenities space. It consists of seven maintenance roads with capacity for 1,000 cars, an automatic train wash plant, and an under floor wheel profiling lathe. The group even got to see a glimpse of the new Sydney Growth Trains. The event was well received by all participants. A huge thank you to the Downer Rail team.
