The L, R and S sets are a class of electric multiple unit operated by Sydney Trains in New South Wales, Australia. The carriages are of stainless steel, double deck construction and are not air-conditioned. The "L," "R" or "S" set designation is dependent on the number of carriages in a set, L sets being three cars in length, R sets being six cars in length, and S sets being four cars in length (usually paired to form eight car trains). The first A set was introduced in July 2011 - eventually all R and S sets will be replaced by A sets. L set services will be filled by existing four car rollingstock. From March 2012 until December 2015, it is anticipated that Railcorp will be asking for expressions of interests from Australia and overseas to purchase the 320 to 550 carriages.Only a handful of S sets remain in service(R set trains, 6 car s sets have already been withdrawn from service) , S sets are the only passenger trains operating in Sydney Trains that are not air-conditioned.
