Steamrail Northern Weekender Tour To Swan Hill and Echuca

 
  Quambatook Junior Train Controller

Looking forward to this weekends event. I hope to catch up with it at various locations.
It will again provide a lot of interest up North. Many locals are excited about the upcoming visit after local newspaper coverage this week.
I have heard that a decision has been made to run with only R761 and a T due to loadings. At least it is running and not cancelled which was my greatest fear.

On the way to Bendigo for the Weekender, managed to get a shot of J549 departing Maldon with the VGR train to Castlemaine.

Was it really necessary to make eight separate posts rather than put the links in one?

What a great weekend! Thanks to Steamrail for putting it on. It created a lot of excitement up in Swan Hill and at all nearby towns like Kerang where breakfast was held.
Well done and thanks to those who have posted vision of the weekend.

Kind Regards,
Quambatook.
