Ran from Cootamundra to Albury and stowed in the yard.

I managed to get stopped by it at level crossings at Bethungra (twice, at the top of the hill and just south of the station and in Junee itself, and got photos at all three as well as Albury later in the day).

Interestingly AK81 appears to have stopped at Coonalpyn.
Radar now shows it numbered AK86 and travelled west back to Coomandook.
Now shown (17:36ACDT) as heading east again

Its been a long time since we last saw a 47class in Grafton. So what a pleasing sight it was to see these 2 hauling the AK Cars north this afternoon. They return to Grafton Wednesday for an overnight stay and leave here on Thursday Morning going south.
