Introduction

This page lists all of the classes and class groups covered so far as well as the others that are planned. If you know what you are looking for you can go straight from here. The list includes both W.A.G.R. and M.R.W.A. classes. In the case of the W.A.G.R. vehicles it is the post 1900 classes that are listed. There is as yet insufficient information to include G.S.R. classes.

There are pictures on most of the pages but not all as some things just disappeared before my time. I hope to be able to add pictures from other sources eventually. Link to pages where there are pictures missing are shown in green.

WAGR carriages all had codes starting with the letter A and there is now a book on the subject. You can order a copy from the Rail Heritage WA sales.
