Our carriages are from an era when everyone travelled by rail and travel was more elegant. Our ‘S type carriages, so familiar to Victorian travellers, once featured on the iconic ‘Spirit of Progress’. We also have former V/Line ‘N’ type saloon carriages. If you’re travelling with us, planning to – or perhaps planning on chartering your own train – the information below outlines the details for each carriage.
S & N types entered service between 1937 and 1984. All carriages are limited to 115kmh.
NOTE: Seat numbers (where shown) and other specific details may differ from carriage to carriage. This page does not include crew cars, service cars, carriages undergoing restoration or not currently in service.
