and are not air-conditioned. The "L," "R" or "S&quot; set designation is dependent on the number of carriages in a set, L sets being three cars in length, R sets being six cars in length, and S sets being four cars in length (usually paired to form eight car trains). 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. Railcorp selling off L, R and S Set train carriages The R sets are six car sets which usually consist of three motor and three trailer cars. However, a number of R sets run with four motors and two trailers due to the shortage of trailers as a result of the withdrawal of the Tulloch trailers. These four motor R sets are colloquially known as "Pocket Rockets" or "Super Six" sets. These sets operate on all CityRail suburban lines except the Eastern Suburbs & Illawarra Line and the Carlingford line (Carlingford railway line). R13 to R26 are maintained at the Flemington Maintenance Depot and operate on Sector 2, and R31 to R44 (with R41 and R43 being only four cars long and paired with "S&quot; set) at the Hornsby maintenance depot and operate on Sector 3.

R Sets are starting to be formed into S Sets with the roll-out of A Sets and some are moving from sectors The '''Endeavour railcar''' is a class of Diesel multiple unit operated by CityRail in New South Wales, Australia.

The notable information from the above nominated pages are in the CityRail article, thus all pages are redundant.

I don't think you guys know much about CityRail (if you do I am very sorry), but I wouldn't just jump on US and Canadian votes and randomly vote for their deletion for reasons that I may not know anything about. Anyway, the train types which the Sectors determine are listed on CityRail's webpage and the sectors are not obscure as people have suggested. However, I will agree that the five articles don't warrant their own page each - one page will suffice when the CityRail article is improved and that information doesn't need to be on the front page. I have merged all the information in the articles onto the front page so you are now welcome to delete them. ::That's a '''Delete all''' from me.

thumb Tangara feature curved windows on the upper deck. The top of these are tinted to provide some protection from the sun. (File:Tinted windows tangara.jpg) Since 2003, all Tangaras have been updated with a new CityRail corporate appearance. This involved the fitting of yellow panels on the front, yellow painted passenger doors and the end carriages receiving yellow paint surround for the benefit of visually impaired passengers. http: www.nsw.gov.au projects major-makeover-tangara-fleet Blue and yellow stripes along the bottom of the carriages were replaced by a single yellow stripe and new fuzzy CityRail logos were placed on the driving cars.
