V1213 ran in the 2006 season but after that I can't tell you what happened.

Perhaps someone else has more recent information?

the pemberton tramway has not run steam since 2006 because of several reasons some of these include cost of maintenance to the track and locomotive and rolling stock also getting steam crews is getting harder .

I can put up pics from 2006, if anyone would like to see them.

Being a Qld'r that V class felt big and slow, but with lots of character.

Shame its out of service.

She's out of service, but not out of life. Word is she's being transferred to Isandra to run there. (just outside of pinjarra)

went for a ride on the Tram out to Warren Bridge over the long weekend just gone. Was a nice ride, would be even better if it went all the way through to Northcliffe. Some beautiful scenery in that part of the state!

yes the pemberton tramway used to go to Northcliffe but again it was closed owing to time and money

The next pics of the V in action at Pemberton are excellent,so thanks for the memory. Ian and team are true Railway enthusiasts. Nice also to have their HVTR input skills  too this current day at Pinjarra.
