History

From 1 January 2004 until 30 June 2013, Rail Corporation New South Wales (RailCorp) provided metropolitan passenger rail services via CityRail and long distance services via CountryLink. RailCorp also owned and maintained the metropolitan rail network and provided access to freight and third-party operators in the metropolitan area.

From 2013 until 30 June 2020, RailCorp’s operation and maintenance functions were transferred to Sydney Trains and NSW Trains, leaving RailCorp as an asset owner.

From 1 July 2020, RailCorp was converted into TAHE and established as a statutory State Owned Corporation. The TAHE asset base is comprised of heavy rail rolling stock, property, land, plant, machinery, trackwork and infrastructure.
