Ex-Tasmanian Railways SP5

JANUARY 2024 – TBA

SP5 is an interesting carriage, and one of two that the railway owns. These were initially built by Sentinell-Cammell as Steam-Powered Railmotors, meaning that they had a boiler and a driven bogie, to propel itself along the line! Though in later Tasmanian years, these were reverted to be an unpowered carriage. The empty space where the control machinery was housed provides us with a very unique carriage, with a future as an accessible events car. This project is in the early strip-down phase, and is a long term project requiring a lot of fabrication work, as well as dual-braking.
