Tasmanian Government Railways

Tasmanian Government Railways (TGR) was formed in 1872 after it began to take over failing privately owned railway lines with its headquarters in Launceton, Tasmania. TGR owned lines ranging from Deloraine, the North West Coast, Hobart and Launceton to Antill Ponds and Turnbridge.

In 1978 TGR was amalgamated with the Commonwealth Railways, South Australian Railways to form the new Australian National Railways Commission, operating as Tasrail.
