Published on Mar 16, 2012 by Tasmanian Trains
A short promotional film for the Tasman Limited, c. 1955. The Tasman Limited commenced as a railcar operated passenger service between Hobart and Wynyard in April 1954. The DP railcars (Nos 25-30) were built in 1950 by Commonwealth Engineering NSW and were articulated. Interestingly the opening scenes showing the train passing Government House and Botanical Gardens incorrectly show railcars of a different type which were not used on the Tasman.

Interior scenes are correctly shot on-board one of the articulated railcars. Outside scenes show the train crossing the Midland Highway at Granton causeway and past Granton station skirting along the river foreshore heading towards Hobart. The final scene shows the train passing Austins Ferry.

The railcars carried name-boards depending on the direction of travel: Hobart to Launceston was "The Tamar", Launceston to Wynyard was the "Table Cape" and Wynyard to Launceston was "The Launcestonian" and Launceston to Hobart was "The Derwent".

In December 1955 the railcars were replaced by a diesel locomotive-hauled service, predominately by X class but occasionally Y class locos from the late 60's.
