Melbourne's 4D double deck train constructed by Goninan's in Newcastle for the Public Transport Corporation entered service in March 1992. It was intended to be a prototype for consideration of future use of double deck trains in Melbourne. Subsequent Management appointees of the PTC and its successors did not favour such trains. After a short operating life it was sold in 2006 to RailCorp NSW who stripped it of all parts which could be used on their Tangara trains and what was left was scrapped by Simsmetal at Brooklyn.
