The railcars now at the Museum are former TGR diesel-powered vehicles which are capable of multiple unit operation. These cars were still in use when the TGR ceased operating suburban and country passenger trains in the 1970s.

The following vehicles are at the museum:

Currently DP26 runs twice a month at the societies Glenorchy museum, while DP15 is undergoing overhaul.

Since full restoration, DP26 has done a number of mainline tours, including trips in the greater Hobart area as well as charter work to Launceston and Burnie
