This is going to be a "photo bomb" of 4601. Some amazing shots taken by "Lox Pix" on 24 February 2019 at Valley Heights of 4601, both outside and in the cab. Also a great shot by Thomas Bulic taken on ...

Worth checking out the link to David Johnson's U set gallery I provided earlier as he added a video taken on the night of 05 September 1994 of a 4-car U set pulling into Springwood station with an all ...

Thanks for sharing this video. I believe 4458 hauled the last Intercapital Daylight Express (with 4427 - Melbourne bound) as well as the last south bound North Mail (from Tenterfield).

This year's expo must've been easily the biggest. The heritage it had:-

Steam

- 6029 running shuttles

- 3265 running shuttles

- 3642 on display at Central

- 3526 on display at Mortuary station

Will be interesting to see if the V sets are outright sold for scrap only like the S sets or if they will offer them for sale? I ask due to the fact that a couple of the DCM power cars, most of which  ...

Is that standard procedure for any of the other S sets retired or just this particular set had parts taken of it? Just curious, wonder what those parts were? How many sets does that leave now? Also I  ...

All I could find on this one. It mentions that the first of the new Double Decker carriages (V set) left Central station for a ceremony at Katoomba this morning (date unknown). It is either the first  ...

Someone else in the know will probably be able to answer better but, from what I understand

An interesting post with photos shared here by John Cronshaw and perhaps hints at potential uses of preserved V sets post retirement from service.

I've seen someone say that elsewhere although I doubt it will happen for a couple of reasons.
