The Faddeev equations are solved in momentum space for the trinucleon bound state with the new Tucson-Melbourne $\pi$ and $\rho$ exchange three-nucleon potentials. The three-nucleon potentials are combined with a variety of realistic two-nucleon potentials. The dependence of the triton binding energy on the $\pi NN$ cut-off parameter in the three-nucleon potentials is studied and found to be reduced compared to the case with pure $\pi$ exchange. The $\rho$ exchange parts of the three-nucleon

When the recommended parameters are employed, the calculated triton binding energy turns out to be very close to its experimental value. Expectation values of various components of the three-nucleon potential are given to illustrate their significance for binding.
