V/locity Railcar

The V/locity is part of the regional fast rail project which is a project to provide better and faster services for regional Victoria. Officially called the "V/locity 160" they are better known as "V/locities". All but one of the sets built are in service. They are also Victoria's first true DMU "Diesel Multiple Unit", Not counting the Sprinters as they can run as a single unit. The V/locities are coupled into a single unit inn two and three car units with a unique numbering system of one car starting with 11 and the second car starting with 12 and if it is a three car it starts with 13, e.g. VL 1 would be 1101-1201 and a three car e.g. VL 41 1141-1341-1241, the middle cars are coded TM. there are also two different types or orders of V/locity with the origional being VL 1 - VL 41 and the second order being VL 0 and VL 42 - VL 51. VL 0 is the only two car version of the second series. The second series can be identified by a red livery and an extra set of head lights above the cab. All of the first series 3 car V/locities entered service as 2 car sets and then re-entered service as 3 car sets excluding VL 41 which entered service as a 3 car and never ran as a 2 car set. In late 2012 V/line extended the order for 40 new cars. The order included 7 new 3 car sets and 19 new middle cars to convert the whole fleet to 3 cars. In May 2015 funding for an additional 7 three car sets was announced as part of the regional rail link funding and in the 2016 state budget funding was announced for '27 new V/locity carriages' to bring the fleet up to 75 three car sets.
