NSWGR Trikes

Text Box: NSWGR Trikes is a Father and Son team that takes on an active interest in the preservation and restoration of certain types of NSW railway track vehicles. Together we own a collection of trikes*, some have been restored to full working order while others are on the to do list.

Our interest in these machine dates back to 1987. It started with a Fairmont ST2 and the, then unrestricted use of the Blayney to Cowra cross country branch line.
Over the years we have learnt much having worked with and operated most trikes the New South Wales Government Railways employed.

This site is for sharing information and promoting this hobby.
Check out our Facebook, Blog and Youtube channel for the latest news from the NSWGR Trikes workshop. 

NSWGR Trikes seeks out these machine for preservation and/or restoration. If you have one of these machines or know of one, we would like to hear about it. 

* = Trikes is a slang term used in NSW to describe these machines despite having 4 wheels. Other terms used are; section cars, speeders, motor cars, quads, gang cars, inspection vehicles.

The information and pictures on this are owned by NSWGR Trikes. Otherwise noted.
