The first A set (CityRail A set) was introduced in July 2011 - eventually all R and S sets will be replaced by A sets. L set services will be filled by existing four car rollingstock. From March 2012 until December 2015, it is anticipated that Railcorp will be asking for expressions of interests from Australia and overseas to purchase the 320 to 550 carriages.
