The railway was first developed as a direct-service railway in 1888, and was operated by the British East India Company (now British Railways).
Its first passenger was Charles Dickens, who lived on the train in 1849.
The railway eventually expanded into other countries, including the United States and Japan.
The first train to reach Australia was the National Railway of Australia (now Australian National Railways), launched in the 1920s.
A decade later, the first train was operated on the first day of the country’s first commercial passenger service, the Western Australia Railway.
The train was named after the Western Australian city where it was built, which was later renamed to Melbourne.
Today, the train’s name is a tribute to the town, with a train on the route passing through the town’s famous railway station, the “Melbourne Train”.

In 1888, the sign was replaced by a red “Cogwheel” sign.
It is a train sign that reads “COGWHEEL TRUNC”.
It was designed by architect Peter McLean in 1902 and installed on the front of the locomotive by the late Charles H. Brimstone in 1913.
The sign was designed to highlight the train, and its connection to the rail system.
On one side of the sign, it depicts a railway track, while the other side shows the train on its platform.
The “C” is for “Cogswheel”, the railway track that runs along the track.
On the train platform, the trains name is printed in white, “Train”, “C”, and the letters “T” for “Train” on the same line.
In the 1930s, a train built by the Victorian Government to the Melbourne railway station was named the “Victoria Train”.
The train remains in service to this day.
The Victorian train was designed in 1909, and is still in service today.
On its return journey from the Adelaide Railway Station, the Victoria Train, now known as the Adelaide Train, crosses the River Murray.
The locomotive is a converted steam locomotive, and it was designed as a replacement for the Victoria Railway locomotive that died in 1912.
The Adelaide Train was retired in 1972.
In 1976, the locomotives name was changed to the “Cargo Train” to better reflect the fact that it is a cargo train, rather than a passenger train.
The last passenger on the Victoria train was William McBride, who was riding the train when it was scrapped in 1973.
He passed away in 1990.
The final passenger on this train was Jack Hickey, who died in 1975.
On May 3, 1986, the Victorian Railway Museum opened its doors to the public for the first time since it was founded.
Today it has over 80,000 exhibits and displays.
