About SRHC

The Seymour Railway Heritage Centre Inc. (SRHC) was formed in 1983 by a group of railwaymen from the former Seymour Locomotive Depot which was closed under rationalisation of rail services in Victoria.

The unique skills and knowledge attained over the years was put to good use in forming the SRHC and lobbying the Victorian Government for acquisition of locomotives and rollingstock to be preserved in the interests of Victoria’s railway heritage and Australian railway heritage generally.

A long term lease of the former Loco depot was obtained incorporating  buildings and extensive yards  with carriage sheds, maintenance buildings with an electric turntable serving both standard and broad gauge tracks.

Over the years the SRHC has built up an impressive fleet of diesel locomotives acquired from the State Government on a permanent loan basis and others obtained through outright purchase.
