Victorian Railways Rolling Stock
Assembled from the research conducted 1973 through 1990. Much material not colated. Used initially for support information for vehicles photographed. As it was quicker to collect info on all rolling stock than 'hunt and peck' the data covers rolling stock from 1886 onwards. New construction is complete from 1886 to the 1980's. Scrap and disposal data is complete to 1927, spotty to the 1980s.

Rail Photography & Ticketing, Rob O'Regan
In this section you will find an ever-increasing number of scanned, rail-related black and white photographs dating back to 1976. The major emphasis is on the rolling stock of the former Victorian Railways and its later reincarnations - then to a lesser extent, that of former New South Wales Government Railways in its later guises. A smaller number of South Australian, Western Australian and Australian National Railways rolling stock images basically complete the site.
