DERMPAV is a non profit organisation operating out of part of the Newport Railway Workshops in Victoria, Australia. We are committed to restoring our Diesel Electric Rail Motors for the operation of main line tours across the State Government owned Victorian railway network. All money earned from our operations is put back into restoring our DERMs to ensure that examples of these railmotors are available for all to experience across the state.
