Right up until the 1980's several Loco depots and stabling points existed in the Great Southern area of the then Westrail. Facilities existed at Narrogin, Wagin, Lake Grace, Katanning & Albany. Today the only stabling point (and base for train crews) is Wagin.


Narrogin Loco, a relic of the steam era could not accomodate all of the locomotives allocated there. Here we see XA1413, G class, XA1401 & XB1020, together with the other bits and pieces of an operating depot. Photo taken on 19 June 1983.


At the other end and in the depot proper the new Locomotive era was already present. Here we see DB1591, DB1590 photo again taken on 19 June 1983.


Wagin Yard, with the loco depot in the middle distance, together with a good range of signals. Photo taken 17 April 1982.


XB1017,XA1412 poke out from the old Wagin Loco shed on 17 April 1982.


At Katanning in the '80's locomotives were stabled on a siding where a fuel point existed, here we see XA1414 Yindi between duties on 17 April 1982.


The resident TA class shunter normally resided in the main yard at Katanning between shunting duties. Here we see TA1809 on 17 April 1982.
