See this Grand Old Lady and Learn All About Her
The Leschenault Lady has played a part in the lives of so many people, and is now 118 years old. The train was retired in Bunbury but acquired by George Baxter for a tourist venture.
For the next 20 years, the engines pulled the vintage train out of Bunbury. When the railway station was moved out of town, Boyanup became the adopted home of Leschenault Lady.
On Sunday 18th December, 2016, the South West Rail and Heritage Centre pays tribute to this grand old lady with its "Leschenault Lady Love-In".
The South-West Rail and Heritage Centre is the re-incarnation of the Boyanup Museum through the Co-operation of Rail Heritage WA, Capel Men's Shed, Preston River Old Machinery Group, and Shire of Capel.
