"New South Wales’ new Regional Rail Fleet will be built with bi-mode technology to allow both diesel and electric operation, for an estimated cost saving of $2 million a year.

Along with a saving in diesel fuel costs, the government estimates $1 million per annum in health and environmental benefits by reducing carbon emissions by more than 540 tonnes annually – the equivalent of around 77 Australian households. The trains will also be quieter during their electric operation."
