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.
