Was on WIN News last night that SSR visited the railway and delivered 3 Y class locos to VGR, one appeared to be 157. Some good news for them. Haven't seen this news anywhere else, so don't know if they were donated or on loan or purchased.Stumbled across this thread while looking for another one, didn't see this post when it first came up,
Noel And Friends over at the Rail Revival Alliance are already having a meltdown over that one!The track is utterly stuffed. It would need a total rebuild anyway to be useful, and VGR are flat out maintaining the Castlemaine-Maldon section. In an ideal world with rivers of cash and many more volunteers - yes, it would be great to have tourist trains running on this line.
