Would be lovely to see this in Victoria again..... (Bloody SG)
Because of the loading gauge differences between SAR and VR, SAR steam locos can't/couldn't travel in Victoria due platform clearance issues.I don’t think 520 has run beyond Serviceton in its lifetime, not sure if it’s ever been to said location?Oz steam 88?
......... I would really like to see 520 going again and ride behind it though it may be by repute a bit harsher on the track to Victor Harbor...Back in the days when I was married, the wife, myself, a good work mate and his wife went on the Southern Encounter special from Keswick to Victor with 520 (pre Standardisation) and had a great day, so good we did it again a month or so later
Don't forget that 621 had a trip to Melbourne in the 90's.Yes correct 621 ventured into Victoria during May 1994 but only as far as Bacchus Marsh. (see below)
