Now this is a time when I wished I hadn't moved from my house which was a 3min walk to Roseville station!

Steam in February?? Doesn't NSW have some rule where it prevents steam locos being used between December & start of March?

The tradition has been (in recent years at least) to take advantage of the high fire season to do maintenance on locos etc rather than try and run with the chance of fire bans causing headaches.

No such rule and, as far as I know, never has been.
