Heritage EOI Cars


In 2008, RailCorp completed an expression of interest process to dispose of non-core movable heritage assets. SETS applied for and successfullly acquired three historically significant electric suburban passengers cars. In December 2008, the cars were moved by rail to Chullora Workshops, where they were subsequently transferred to a truck by crane for removal to indoor storage.
