Western Australia is a long way from the eastern states of Australia, where I have spent most of my life, so I have never been particularly intimate with WA railways. However, I have made one or two trips over there, and what little there is in this section arises from those visits. Any reader who is willing and able to contribute images of WA railway scenes not covered here is encouraged to write to me.
Four of these locos were built by Robert Stephenson for the fledgling Sydney Railway Company, which commmenced operations on 29 Mar 1855. They were withdrawn by 1879, but fortunately one was saved and is preserved for the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences at Ultimo (now know as the Powerhouse Museum).
I lived in Canberra for 13 years, and was active in the ACT Division of the Australian Railway Historical Society . Included in this section are a few photos of some of the activities we participated in during that time.
