NEW ARRIVALS | MBC Refrigeration Van & L-Truck


It’s been a busy weekend at Cooma with two new arrivals to join our fleet of heritage freight rolling stock. Yesterday saw the arrival of timber refrigeration van MBC 22959 and an L-Truck.

Despite its appearance, MBC 22959 is in relatively good condition with minimal timber replacement required and restoration will commence shortly. Both items will be restored for display in the museum and will help tell the story of [...]

New Arrivals | 🚃 S-Trucks 🚃


It’s always exciting when we get new arrivals in the yard and this month we’ve continued to grow our rolling stock collection with the addition of two more S-Trucks. S-Trucks were a staple on the railway’s of NSW, carrying almost any type of freight. They were also a common site on goods trains in Cooma, transporting wool and grains as well as supplies for the original Snowy Hydro construction. These wagons are from the NSW State collection and will be restored by our volunteers at Cooma for display in our museum alongside our existing S-Trucks. If you would like to [...]

Treasure Transoms


A vital element in bolstering CMR’s return to the rails arrived in the Cooma railway freight yard today. A heavy haulage trio of trucks has delivered 320 bridge transoms that have been recycled from the Sydney Harbour Bridge, courtesy of the NSW Government, Transport for NSW (TfNSW) and Sydney Trains. The transoms became available as they were being replaced by concrete sleepers on the iconic bridge and will be used to repair or rebuild the culverts and bridges along CMR’s track network both north and south of the yard. Our priority is to rebuild the culvert that was burnt-out in a [...]
