The Sprinter is a light diesel rail passenger vehicle, manufactured in 1993 specifically to transport passengers on non-electrified service lines.
Sprinter railcars are capable of operating as single units or in multiple unit sets, of up to eight vehicles. Each Sprinter railcar incorporates a driver's cab at each end, allowing the vehicle to travel in either direction with no loss of efficiency.
The propulsion system of the Sprinter is based on dual traction units which are capable of operating the vehicle at speeds in excess of 130km/h.
The Public Transport Corporation of Victoria operates 22 Sprinter railcars for outer-suburban intercity service.
