Australian rolling stock

One of BHP Iron Ore's GE AC6000W locos in the Pilbara, Western Australia.

The Australian MSTS scene is growing with several Australian designers of locos, train sets and rolling stock adding to the world-wide collection of free MSTS add-ons.

As well, Australian MSTS enthusiasts are contributing to the many ways to improve MSTS by sharing their innovative ideas with the international MSTS community.

All those who use their talents to help us enjoy MSTS to a greater extent know we appreciate their work when we download and install what they freely make available. Of course, a short post of congratulations for the enjoyment their work gives us lets them know we value their time and effort.
