New publication[edit]

I have just looked through a new release called A History of WAGR Passenger Carriages ISBN 0646459023 written by Andrew May and Bill Grey. As the name says is covers all carriages used by WAGR includes original photos, drawings/diagrams and scaled drawings. It covers purchase and where they were used (including carriage numbers) . Its upto date with sections on AEA & AEB (current metro passenger cars) and the WDA, WDB & WDC the current prospector trains. Gnangarra 13:17, 13 October 2006 (UTC)


The history section could do with quite a bit of wikilinking to relevant pages. Wongm (talk) 03:21, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Railways in Perth[edit]

At the moment Railways in Perth is just a redirect here, and this article only deals with suburban passenger services. From my limited knowledge you also have the dual gauge goods lines from Midland to Forestfield / Kewsdale, as well as another freight line north to Fremantle, and south back onto one of the passenger lines. Unfortunately I don't know enough to expand it out.

Railways in Adelaide and TransAdelaide is an example of how to manage the split between it all, if anyone wants to jump in. I have never liked the Railways in Melbourne / Freight railways in Melbourne / Connex Melbourne split, even though I added the middle one.Wongm (talk) 13:25, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

there are also a number of disused lines. Gnangarra 13:43, 4 July 2008 (UTC)


The whole thing could do with alot more historical information, I'm especially interested in knowing what year each track was opened, and that sort of thing. Oxinabox (talk) 01:46, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

Useful stuff[edit]

These links have a few useful titbits - I have already gone though the Midland line: [1] [2]

Railway map[edit]

Could anyone be able to complete the railway map (File:Transperth railway map.svg)? The map is a bit cut off to the south. It does not show Mandurah line completely! -- (talk) 14:49, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

Armadale/Thornlie railway line[edit]

Will the new Stadium station be at the same location as the old Belmont Park? Useddenim (talk) 18:05, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

According to, "the now closed Belmont Park Station will be expanded into a six platform rail station called Stadium Station." So the answer is YES. -FrancDeBx (talk) 20:08, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

Transperth Train Operations[edit]

According to and the division is Transperth Train Operations not Transperth Trains. Does someone have reference that says Transperth Trains? Or shall I rename and update the article to Transperth Train Operations? Mitch Ames (talk) 11:30, 11 March 2015 (UTC)
