    Shortly before 2 a.m. on November 11, 2015, X'Trapolis train 927M-1664T-928M derailed, following an unauthorised movement from the yard, resulting in several collisions with various infrastructure and another train. On June 1, 2016, a former Metro Trains worker pleaded guilty to causing the incident, along with lighting two fires at Newport Workshops in 2015, which damaged or destroyed heritage train carriages, including a historical Swing Door EMU.
