Spirit of Warragul train and vehicle display

The Spirit of Warragul A2 986 steam locomotive, returned to Warragul on May 13 2017.  It was on display at a park in Warragul from 1964 to 1986 then for the next 31 years it was restored by Steamrail Victoria. To celebrate the inaugural run of the train there was display of vehicles - traction engines, cars, tractors and trucks - in Warragul near the railway station.  After the train left Warragul it continued on to Traralgon and then returned to Melbourne later that day.


This is the Spirit of Warragul  taken between Yarragon and Trafalgar.


Not often you see a traction engine in Warragul


There were three steam traction engines at the display


This is a bit of an ordinary photo, but best we could get.


I like this photo - I love the steam

  1. My nephew who is obsessed with trains forced me to open your website and check the images out! I must agree with him, they are quiet cute.
