Victorian Railways ‘S-class’

Thank you for your support on this project. All models are now sold out.

As running in the 1950s with coal or oil tender

Streamlined in 1937, the four members of the VR S-class hauled the "Spirit of Progress" from Melbourne to Albury non-stop at an average speed of 38km/h and an Australian speed record of 128km/h.

It was easily Australia’s most famous train and literally put the Victorian Railways on the map of world passenger railways.

The ‘S-class’ continued in service until 1953-54, and all four were scrapped soon afterwards.

TrainBuilder is offering the ‘S-class’ as it rain in the late 1940s and 1950s, with coal or oil tender.
