Welcome to the Queensland Diesel Restoration Group

The Queensland Diesel Restoration Group is a privately funded volunteer group dedicated to the history and restoration of ex Queensland Railway diesel locomotives. . .

. . . and we’re currently looking for volunteers to help!

Working bees are as required, please contact us to be added to the working bee mailing list. Please note, the location of each working bee will be advised once dates, and times are finalised and communicated.

Water, food, PPE such as steel capped boots, a high vis shirt, safety glasses, ear protection and a hat are essential. Most tools will be supplied but any extra tools may be asked of you if required and we will let you know what may be required in advance.

Our current projects, are the restoration of ex QR locos, English Electric loco 1225, Clyde 1700 Class loco 1707D and Clyde 1720 Class loco 1741D. We also own LTC 1849, a former Locomotive Testing Carriage. If you are interested in helping us, please contact Greg via the contact page for further info!
