Our Mission

It’s easy to do great work when you believe in what you do. That’s why we’re committed to bringing back 520 to the rails!

Our Project

We're always working on something. Most of the time, we're focused on keeping  our operational stock in service. But every so often we get the chance to work on other projects. 520 is one of them.

Our Team

We’re more than a bunch of experts. We’re a family of like-minded people, using our passion and our skills to keep heritage rail alive in South Australia!
