Hi all,

A reminder Steamrail are running Suburban Shuttles out of Flinders Street on Sunday 9th April 2017 to Essendon, Caulfield and Sunshine. Locomotives are D3 639 and K190 hauling the Tait Cars.

Before anyone comments, no the Pantographs won't be up on the Tait Cars however their operation on the main line once again is assisting with the ongoing works Steamrail and V/Line are doing to enable the Taits to run under their own power.

Seats are selling well online, I would encourage if anyone wants a ride to consider booking - https://www.trybooking.com/PCTO

Regards,
Lionel.

To someone of my great age, a ride in a Tait would be the ultimate in nostalgia. For four years, I travelled between Burwood and East Richmond in them, to and from Melbourne High School.
Ah - nostalgia - it's just not what it used to be Embarassed

It will be the end of the world for the OH&S Nazis - all those doors............or will they shrink wrap the Tait cars after the passengers have boarded?

That's why we have Train Officers on the train.
A process was drawn up as part of the process to return the Taits to the main line and it worked fine on the previous trip last year, same again this time.
