Abandoned Hotham Valley Trains in Perth

The Abandoned Train Cemetery in Perth, WA

In order to reduce the dependence on Westrail’s ageing wooden coaches, Hotham Valley initiated a worldwide search in 1987 for second-hand, modern steel coaches that would meet the needs of the railway for a very long time into the future.

The outcome of this search was the acquisition of a large fleet of eminently suitable coaches from South Africa in 1988. These trains were subsequently used for a variety of reasons, one of which was the Mountain type ‘W’ class restaurant and another a fire brigade coach.
