The Oscar trains are similar to the Millennium trains but are designed to run services to destinations in the interurban area. They operate as four-car sets, with a driving trailer car at each end and two the non-driving motor cars in the middle. The driving trailer cars are also power cars and each has a pantograph. Two sets are combined to form an eight-car train. They resemble the M Set (Millennium) trains. The Oscar trains typically operate on the Central Coast & Newcastle line, the Eastern Suburbs line, the South Coast line, and the Blue Mountains line as far as Springwood, with some weekday only services on the Western line to Emu Plains. Oscar refers to ‘outer suburban car’.
