The AEC railmotor was the first generally successful railmotor built for the Victorian Railways in south-eastern Australia. 19 vehicles were built from 1922 through 1925, along with 24 trailer vehicles built to a similar design.


Design

Four different internal layout were used, providing for different traffics.

Construction

Details

  • On the Upfield line an AEC railmotor operated a shuttle service between Fawkner and Somerton (on the site of today's Roxburgh Park station) from the reopening of the section in 1928, until 1956 when the line north from Fawkner was closed.[3]

In service

Withdrawal & preservation

The AEC's were withdrawn throughout the 1950s as the new Walker railmotors came into service.
