The Endeavour Diesel Multiple Units entered service in 1994 and were refurbished in 2009–10. Each set consists of two carriages, which are sometimes combined to operate as four-car trains. They are mechanically the same as the Xplorer Diesel Multiple Units but are designed to run over shorter distances, and thus have different passenger amenities. The Endeavours mostly operate on the Illawarra line between Kiama and Bomaderry, and the Southern Highlands line between Campbelltown, Moss Vale and Goulburn. They also operate on the Main Western line between Sydney, Lithgow and Bathurst, and the Hunter line between Newcastle Interchange, Maitland, Telarah, Dungog, Muswellbrook and Scone. Cars TE2815 and LE2865 were converted to Xplorer cars.
