Walker trailer

As with most Victorian Railmotors the 280hp Walker railmotors, 153hp Walker railmotors and the 102hp Walker railmotors were introduced alongside with matching trailers. The first 5 trailers came into play when VR ordered the first 5 153's. When that order was extended for railmotors the order for trailers was extended aswell to bring the total count of Walker trailers to 15. None of these vehicles are currently operational with the two Yarra Valley Railway owned trailers being stored out in the open and vandalised for almost 30 years and before being purchased by said society and 56MT is awaiting restoration by the Daylesford Spa Country Railway.
