High Capacity Metro Train testing on the Werribee line

On the evening of 2 January 2020 HCMT set 2 commenced brake testing runs on the Werribee line, between Newport and Werribee. The train had been delivered to the stabling yard at Newport Workshops a week earlier, hauled by a pair of diesel locomotives. Further testing was completed later in 2020, with the trains travelling under their own power from Pakenham East by October.
