SSR operates two workshops on the east coast. Our Victorian workshop is based in Bendigo, with direct access onto the broad gauge rail network. Our NSW workshop is based in Lithgow with direct access onto the standard gauge rail network.
Road transporting rail assets to both workshops can also be a very cost-effective solution for major repairs (including accident and collision rebuilds), full strip down and rebuild overhauls or painting.
Both workshops provide field service maintenance using a combination of trucks, trailers, and work utility vehicles. Emergency maintenance and recovery call out services are also available.
Many SSR employees are cross skilled, with train drivers also qualified in various trades and locomotive maintenance to provide the right level of flexibility to meet our customer requirements.
From rollingstock maintenance to manufacturing, the team at SSR provides comprehensive services to the rail industry in Australia.

We specialise in providing rollingstock maintenance services for all of your existing assets and manufacturing capabilities for new locomotives and wagons. Being based in Central Victoria gives SSR the ability to provide services with ease. With a 10,000-square metre manufacturing facility on a 14-hectare site, as well as a second large maintenance facility located in Bendigo, SSR is well equipped to cope with growing industry demand.
With the establishment of our machining centre, we can offer an extensive range of CNC machining services. We use the latest equipment and manufacturing techniques to ensure our work is of the highest quality.
Lithgow Railway Workshop primarily provides maintenance support to the locomotives and wagons operated by SSR and other rail industry operators, together with external work including call-outs to equipment breakdowns, wagon and locomotive maintenance and repairs.
In addition to routine servicing, provisioning and wagon periodic maintenance, core business also includes repairing locomotive faults, changing out core components such as traction motors, power assemblies, engines, compressors, alternators, main generators, wheelsets and installing new ICE radio equipment.
Lithgow Railway Workshop supports the community not-for-profit rail heritage movement with restorations and repairs to steam locomotives, historic wagons and passenger carriages, diesel locomotives and passenger railcars.
