Everyone loves a mystery! So what was Sydney Suburban S-set S 52 doing on No 1 Platform, Sydney Central Station today between 12.16 and 12.20pm?
No 1 Platform is usually reserved for the name trains - in the past trains like the Southern Aurora, the Spirit of Progress and the Newcastle Flyer used this platform. Now Platform One is the XPT's realm with trains for Brisbane and Melbourne departing and arriving; as well as the occasional tour trains. So for a lowly suburban train, and an S-set replete with graffiti, no less, to be on the platform road is a mystery indeed!
Our series of three shots show S-52 stationary in the platform and then slowly moving away.
