Inland rail a trifecta for Toowoomba region: mayor
West Coast Railway plans to have one of its damaged locomotives repaired and back in service early next month, after a safety alert forced the trains off the rails two weeks ago.
The company is also hoping to restore all passenger rail services to the Melbourne-Warrnambool route in conjunction with V/Line at the same time.
The company's director, Don Gibson, says full services will be back to normal by Wednesday July 7.
He says details on the progress of work on the other out-of-service locomotives will be announced soon.
"The rebuilding of the locomotive involves the original plans having to be resurrected and then new engineering compilations are made to be able to rebuild the bolsters that form the part of the frame that's cracked so that they're up to modern standards," he said.
