Well breaking news, an Indian Pacicfic will be hauled west with CL17 and GM1, to Parkes. Shadowed by a heritage train dragged along by 3801, 3830 and R766. An option to convert another R class from Victoria to STandard gauge for this one off event is still an option at this stage but hopefully garret 6042, yep the one from Forbes will be drained of flood water and operational.

No time line has been provided.
But, the trolley, that bog, is good stuff.

Keepin the faith, brother.

Sadly, and errily close to the last couple of posts meant in jest, I was actually and in full honesty told in person at Streamliners 2016 that ‘I have a sponsor for GM1 brother! It, GM3 and GM22 to Perth for the 100 years of the Trans! All three to be painted at Lithgow at once so there’s no differences in paint colour. We’ll leave GM1 in Perth fully overhauled for RHWA and come back with 3 and 22’! This was while a quickly assembled band of well meaning volunteers slaved away trying to finish last minute details and planning that had been neglected so that Streamliners could actually go ahead and appear somewhat organised. All for a free sausage sandwich and a thanks brother!

I’m glad I didn’t hold my breath.

CLP10 was issued a Ready to Go Certificate today from CFCLA Goulburn. This means we can get under way with our preparations to move it to Parkes so the restoration can commence. Again a massive thank you for anyone who has chipped in a dollar or shared our post, none of this could have been achieved without you.
