South Spur Rail Services

South Spur Rail Services (SSRS) is a Western Australian owned company that was set up to provide a cost effective alternative for terminal operations and short haul rail services to the rail transport industry. It is a family owned and operated business, whose shareholders come from a Westrail background. With operations currently based at Kewdale, the Company's locomotive fleet consists of ex Westrail English Electric locomotives K205/6/10,KA212 and R1902. In January this year the Company painted K206/10 in original W.A.G.R. 1970's blue livery (see photos below).
