VICTORIAN RAILWAYS 280HP WALKER RAILCAR PROTOTYPE OVERVIEW

After the Second World War, the Victorian Railways ordered a number of railcars from Walker Bros in Wigan, England. Twelve 280HP Walker railcars were ordered and the power units and controls were shipped out from England. The car bodies were built by Martin & King in Malvern, with final fitting out occurring at Newport Workshops.

The 280HP Walker railcars with their central power unit together with two driving/sitting cars and the inherent additional length allowed them to be easily distinguished from their 102HP and 153HP smaller cousins.

The first 280HP Walker railcar, 80RM, entered service on 6 June 1950. These railcars were numbered from 80RM to 91RM inclusive. The final run of a 280HP Walker railcar in Victorian Railways service occurred on 17 September 1980.

Locations that the 280HP Walker railcars operated to included Woodend, Portland, Bendigo, Mansfield, Deniliquin, Daylesford, Wonthaggi, Wangaratta, Werribee, Maryborough and Kyneton.

There were four distinct liveries carried during their life:

Livery 1 1950 to 1955 Period Blue & silver with yellow winged logo on nose

Livery 2 1955 to 1960 Period Blue & gold with gold roof, winged logo on nose & side and side gold pin stripes

Livery 3 1958 to 1965 Period Blue & gold with blue roof, winged logo on nose & side and side gold pin stripes

Livery 4 1965 to 1980 Period Blue & gold with blue roof, no logos and no pin stripes
