The Spirit of the West was a restaurant train that operated out of Perth, Western Australia. It was the brainchild of South Spur Rail Services (SSRS) and began using four restored coaches hired from the Australian Railway Historical Society (ARHS) and a power car purchased from the ARHS and restored to running condition and modified by SSRS. The train operated under the old Midland Railway Company name, an offshoot of South Spur Rail Services. The train ran regular Sunday lunch and Saturday dinner trips from East Perth Terminal into the Avon Valley, running to West Toodyay and return.
