We'd like to say a big thank you to Entanglements Metal Art based in Ormond, for supplying us with 37 Brand New Carriage card holders. These card holders are used when a carriage is reserved to display a carriage number/letter. We are proud to be able to support a local business like Entanglements, especially during these uncertain times. ...

During the week we had a very special arrival. 34BE, a 1910 built E car, fitted with air conditioning from the former South Gippsland Tourist Railway. Our team was given the opportunity to save this carriage and through donations from our own membership, we were able to bring to magnificent part of Victorian Rail history home. In time our carriage team will restore her to her former glory, to be used on our regular services. This is a fantastic achievement by all involved and should be proud of themselves.

If you would like to get involved with Mornington Railway to help to restore this carriage, or assist with any of our ongoing restoration projects.

Can we see a few of inside please ?????

The car does look in reasonable nick. Was it stored under cover at Korumburra?

Glad to see it’s gone to a good home! Well done 👏

Looks in reasonable condition from the pics. A coat of paint and an exam?

Looks good! Looking forward to exploring sometime in the future

Fantastic to see this preserved.

Please keep the name on 34BE in memory of all those who tried hard to save the SGR

15 of these E car carriages were converted by the VR back in the 1930’s

Why wasn't this moved when the other rolling stock was moved last year?

Was it ever named or was the “Kardella” just added when it was down Gippsland?

Glad you guys were able to grab it before the vandals got it..

Chris Callister check this out. Kinda cool

Today was a major milestone for the Keep K163 Going project with the engine lifted from its wheels within the Newport West Block.

This means the detailed measurements, assessment and then repair work can get underway immediately on wheel-sets, axle-boxes, frames, journals and bearings.

The Society’s revenue stream will be reduced with the suspension of passenger trains at Mornington, therefore any support would be greatly appreciated to keep this project moving along:

The Mornington Railway would very much like to thank the hard working volunteers and staff of Steamrail Victoria, for organising the Newport Workshop Open Days and putting on a brilliant show!
This weekend has been an incredible way to showcase the Tourist & Heritage Railway sector to the general public and the importance of the Newport Workshops as the Centre of Excellence for Steam Locomotive maintenance and restoration.
The next phase of the ‘Keep K163 Going’ project will now be to lift the engine from it’s wheels at Newport and assess the condition of bearings, crankpins and axle-boxes to work out the work scope for repairs during 2020, and further long term plans. This will ensure we can keep K163 reliably operating for many years to come.
We thank everyone that came to Newport and passed on their best wishes and kind support!
We would sincerely appreciate your support with this major project, please donated to our GoFundMe campaign:

It was awesome seeing K163 running with it's sisters and other combos to. Plus seeing your crews having fun as well. Good luck with the scoping and hope she's running again soon

It was great to have you ALL on board as well this year.

Here’s my shot

Hope K163 Steam Locomotive will be back in action soon!😀🚂🚃🚃🚃🛤️

Great work gang well done,

Great to see everyone today. Hope K163 is back at mornington sooner rather than later.
