Rail Heritage WA

Rail Heritage WA is the parent body to a number of rail-related heritage sites throughout the state.  The South West Rail and Heritage Centre houses a representative collection of railway rolling stock that belongs to Rail Heritage WA and some of the SWRHC volunteers, in collaboration and consultation with Rail Heritage WA personnel, work on the restoration and maintenance of some of these collection items.

The ‘gem’ in the railway rolling stock currently in residence at the South West Rail and Heritage Centre is the Rail Heritage WA owned “Leschenault Lady” steam locomotive.  Previously used on goods trains and passenger trains, the 120 year old “Leschenault Lady” is a nostalgic favourite in the South West due to her many years of service as part of  a tourist train in the region throughout the 1970s, 80s and 90s.
