The locomotives would be on display in platform 1 over the last weekend in July, and in the days preceding and after the event Clyde built locos from a range of states were transferred to Sydney on National Rail services. Car loads of photographers, descended on the Southern Highlands to capture what at the time we thought would be truly one-off, historic workings. Little did we realise that twenty years later the impact of the privitisation of railroad operations would make such sights common place.
Unfortunately the weather was appalling for most of the time. Video is much more forgiving in those circumstances, but hopefully some people were lucky enough to capture some still images they could share with us.
