Just came across this. Sped up footage of a trip from Sydney to Gosford in a U set taken in the late 1950's or 1960's.

A bit of footage someone snapped of 623/723 stabled outside at Goulburn. Looking great

This locomotive was part of the liquidation sale of the former ARHS ACT Division. It was recently pictured being moved by truck.

LVR are aiming to try win the award for a $198,000 grant for the set 629/729 to restore it as a Riverina based tourist/heritage train.

A video shared by Vernon Fernandez on the final days of S sets, so full credit to him for this.

Of note at 09:13 you see the marshaling of the 24 cars mass moved to scrap on Wednesday, 17 July 201 ...

Eventually we'll find out what makes it with the next (and probably final) scrap run.

With what has survived, you could easily form another 8 car set with "one of each type" of car. This would lar ...

I've seen posts which say that there are 28 S set carriages left at Flemington MC. One says that out of those 28 cars, approximately 8 will go to scrap, which would leave 20 cars (or 5 4 car sets), no ...

Someone said that C3915 had been taken off S123 (formerly C3915-T4926-T4003-C3986) and was stored at the back of Flemington MC by itself and will eventually be scrapped - this was at the time of the m ...

It ran as S28/S56 with C3986 leading and C3862 trailing the 8 car set. So I guess that's confirmed the 2 retained sets. Will be interesting to see which other cars are retained. That means C3861 and C ...

S Sets left at Flemington MC:

S28:         C3765-T4050-C3912

S56:         C3001-T4101-T4961-C3862

S61:         C3930-T4030-T4037-C3931

S64:         C3861

S100:       T4013-C3891

S123:       C3 ...

Some shots I've found on flickr. Pretty good illustration of 2 very good looking Comeng cars (3861 and 3912). The key thing to note with these 2 cars is the very good condition of the "face" of the ca ...

C3861 is one of the oldest cars (delivered December 1974 with 3862) and C3912 is the first of the large Mark 3 Contract. Those two might make it in a set formation along the lines of what you mentione ...

[quote=C3765]10 of the 14 carriages to be preserved were announced on the 1st of July. Theses were:

From what has been posted on the SETS website it seems that cars to be retained officially are motor cars C3805, C3862, C3986, C3765 and C3001. Trailers T4961, T4101, T4150, T4013 and T4050. That's th ...

Just curious, 2 other S set cars that probably don't get much of a mention C3840 and the trailer at Petersham, what exactly is left of those 2 carriages? are they fairly intact?

This was the actual Channel 7 NEWS segment that appear in the 6pm nightly News.

S56 (C3001-T4101-T4161-C3862). The same composition that posed as "S54" for the 40th anniversary of the opening of the ESR (C3001, T4101 also lead that particular train on the day 40 years ago) was th ...

Will be interesting to see which set they use, have a feeling it will be, based on the S Set listing on one of the previous pages S28: C3912-T4050-T4101-C3001 and maybe shifted C3912 onto S56 and swap ...

Thanks for that interesting info.
