The Steam Locomotive display, located next to the Collie Visitor Centre on Throssell Street, should not be missed by rail enthusiasts or historians.
The collection includes an “F” class, “V” class and “W” class, all withdrawn from service in 1971. A popular part of the collection is “Polly”, a traction engine which in 1912 was fitted with loco wheels and winch and converted for use on the railways around Collie. Polly now sits proudly in front of the Visitor Centre.
Learn about the significant role the railway line played on the coal mining town of Collie and how the coal was taken from the mines to the railways for transportation.
Once you have explored the locomotives, call into the Collie Visitor Centre which is conveniently located adjacent to the display where the staff can assist you to plan the remainder of your stay in the region.
