Meet our Diesel Locos on Winter tours from Strahan

West Coast Wilderness Railway heritage diesel locomotives will be used on all tours operating from Strahan from June-August.

The West Coast Wilderness Railway operates two historic diesel locomotives dating from the 1950s, which were acquired specifically for this line and are every bit as integral to the heritage of the railway and the region as our steam locomotives.

The Drewry Diesel engines are part of the story of the Mt Lyell Mining and Railway Company since their purchase in 1953. The Regatta Point to Dubbil Barril section of the line (travelled on the River & Rainforest journey) is where they were operated. When guests travel on the River & Rainforest, they will discover more of the story of these engines significant contribution to the company’s operations.
