Rob Clark has researched the commemorative special train that was organised by the Western Australian Government Railways (WAGR) for the first mainline diesel-electric locomotives, namely the X Class. Many interesting dignitaries of the time rode the train, including Mr C G C Wayne, who was at the time General Manager, Tasmanian Government Railways.
