Victorian Railways

Train Company

The Victorian Railways operated in the Australian state of Victoria from 1859 to 1983. The first railways in Victoria were private companies, but when these companies failed or defaulted, the Victorian Railways was established to take over their operations. Most of the lines operated by the Victorian Railways were of 5' 3". However, the railways also operated up to five 2' 6" narrow gauge lines between 1898 and 1962, and a 4' 8½" standard gauge line between Albury and Melbourne from 1961.
