Dead attached 8646 brings up the rear of three sister 86 class units as they lead 8331 Dubbo Speedfreight, in regen, slowly down the 1 in 42 grade into Lithgow. Not only have the electric locos gone from NSW but the fuel loading which forms the front portion of this train and was a regular freight on the West until the mid 2000s, has since been lost to road transport.
The same train further west can be seen behind ALCo diesel power at: flic.kr/p/dEeXn3
