Perth’s C Series electric trains commenced service in April 2024. A Railcar Manufacturing and Assembly Facility was opened at Bellevue for the trains to be manufactured by French company, Alstom. Orders were placed for 41 train sets, to be delivered over a period of up to ten years, and will replace the A Set trains. They operate as six-carriage sets and began running on the Mandurah and Joondalup Lines. Their maximum speed in general service is 130 km/h.
