The Victorian Government is procuring 65 new high capacity trains, as well as their ongoing maintenance, under a 30 year availability-based Public Private Partnership (PPP). The circa $2 billion project, which includes upgraded signalling and a new depot in Pakenham East, represents the single biggest rolling stock investment in the State's history. Alongside level crossing removals, station rebuilds and infrastructure upgrades, the new rolling stock will increase capacity on Melbourne's rail network by more than 40 per cent.

In September 2016, the Evolution Rail consortium, comprising Downer Rail, China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation (CRRC), and Plenary, were announced as the preferred consortium to build the high capacity trains. Financial close was achieved with the Evolution Rail Consortium on the project in late November 2016.

The first train is expected to be delivered for testing in late 2018, with the first of the new trains expected to come into service in mid-2019.
