3526 - North Shore shuttles - August 2018

 
  Bevan Wall Deputy Commissioner

Here’s a scene recorded this morning of 3526 hauling the first of four Hornsby to Gordon shuttles through Turramurra. With the best locations for video along this stretch of the North Shore line no longer usable due to factors such as extensive vegetation growth, the erection of high security mesh on all the road over bridges, the enclosing of the station access bridges, and elevator shafts obscuring the view from the city ends of the platforms, combined with the weather being way too warm for good atmospherics, I just could not get motivated to stay for the other three trips.
I’ve also included some video of a couple of past North Shore steam shuttle events for comparison.
Enjoy.

Here are my shots from the day, it's good to see the Loco looking so nice and clean

Newly restored Steam Locomotive 3526, chugs up through Pymble on the way to Hornsby, with another shuttle load


3526 has entered the station at Hornsby, as will soon depart down the North Shore line to Gordon.


3526 Chugs through Waitara on another shuttle run to Hornsby, there will be one more shuttle run down to Gordan and return, then 3526 will return to Eveleigh via Central

Kind Regards

Was a good couple of days for sure and a big effort for the employees and volunteers, smile all round the families who were out. Only a minor derailment of 3526 on it's return to Thirlmere yard from a shunter's error.

Thanks Bevan, for your videos and for reminding me of the line I grew up on. eg At Warragal Rd bridge while 3801 came up the grade to Turramurra going at about maximum.
