Wagons from W.A.G.R. were starting to be seen in Victoria. Now you could have an Interstate train made up of wagons from all the mainland states except Queensland.

The former Fyansford Cement diesel locomotive and now T413, had just undergone conversion from 3’ 6” gauge when this picture was taken.

88-12. Ravenhall siding. Ravenhall was the old Commonwealth Department of Supply, Explosives Railway Siding that junctioned off the Ballarat Line at Deer Park. A prohibited area, the train could not enter the yard proper, so I never knew what was at the end of the siding. I suspect it was a P-van, 4-wheel Powder Van of the same type as seen in the photograph at Roll 38-1.

88-18. Spencer Street.

The passenger carriage end seen here belonged to a BC compartment coach that usually formed peak hour Werribee local trains.

They were the remnants of Melbourne’s steam suburban trains that were not converted to electrification from around 1918. They were

originally built between 1900-1907. For more detailed information click here
