The last few weeks of 2021 were exciting for CMR as we took delivery of more rolling stock from the NSW State Collection. This included two items that will play a pivotal role in the restoration and maintenance of our track infrastructure:
🔹 40ft Bogie Flat Wagon
🔹 MHG Guards Van
While both items will be cosmetically restored and feature in our museum precinct, they will also be restored to operating condition where they will assist our team of volunteers as they work toward getting trains back on the rails in the Monaro once again.
The Flat Wagon will allow lengths of rail to be transported up and down the line as required for repairs to existing track, re-installation of lifted track or installation of new track infrastructure.
The MHG Guards Van will be fitted out as a mobile maintenance support vehicle providing our volunteers with mobile workshop and catering facilities where ever they are working out on the line.
Coupled with our sleeper carrying 4-wheel flat wagons and ballast wagons, our track maintenance rolling stock is almost complete and will allow us to maintain greater sections of line.
Now we just need something to pull it. 🤔 Stay tuned for that one…. 😉
