South Dynon loco depot, VIC

Opened in 1964 by the Victorian Railways, as a replacement for North Melbourne loco depot. South Dynon loco depot is the servicing, maintenance and operations point for the majority of broad and standard gauge diesel locomotives in use in Victoria. EMD powered locomotives are the workshop's core business for maintenance, although ALCo products are occasionally maintained in the site's facilities. Due to privatisation of the rail freight and passenger services in the late 1990's, the site passed into the control of private rail operators and/or maintenance companies. Currently, the main shed at Dynon is occupied by EDi on the southern side, and Bombardier on the northern side. The former Dynon Car Shed is now occupied by Gemco (formerly Rail Technical Support, or RTS), who also perform diesel maintenance for varying customers. Note: New generation United Group built locomotives (NR's, 93's etc.) are serviced at a motive power provisioning facilty near Dock Link Road, and maintained at a specially-built facility in Spotswood, Victoria.
