We present some details of our current rolling stock both operational and under restoration. This page will be updated as restoration projects proceed.
660 Class Railcar set 661/726
661/726 is a former NSW Railways 620 Class Diesel Railcar set built in the 1960s. This series of cars usually operated as permanently coupled two car sets throughout NSW. Trailer car 726 was purchased by LSMR in 2014 to replace 761, the original partner to Motor car 661, which was damaged beyond repair in a fire in the shed at State Mine in 2005. The set was restored at Lithgow Railway Workshops which operates at LSMR. 661/726 is fully operational and has been used on LSMR tours. In 2017 the set was leased to a Resort in Byron Bay in northern NSW where it operates a shuttle service to the town.
