The Section Car Pages

South Australian Railways

Section Car Registers


This subsite came about from two sources - firstly the idea has been unashamedly stolen from Kens Section Car Shed, whilst the core information associated with the three subpages is based on some information provided to me by Steve Gordon at the National Railway Museum, Port Adelaide.

The data draws heavily on my notes and photos, however I have not included information that identifies who owns what.

If you own a car, and would like to share a little on its history, or you know of a particular car not referenced please email me and I will add it to the list .

The information in the associated pages is not complete, in particular the Fairmont Car information did not include fleet numbers allocated to the M19AA and ST2 Fairmont cars alocated to the Standardisation Project.

Please do not pinch material from here - ask me!
