Loco AN3 in red Ghan livery powers the Melbourne-bound Overland through Belair in the Adelaide Hills on the morning of 24 December 2005.
The use of an AN-class locomotive on this train was highly unusual, and was due to a major delay to the incoming train from Melbourne that day, causing a desperate rush at Keswick Terminal to assemble suitable rolling stock and motive power for the return Christmas Eve service.
AN3 operated only as far as Tailem Bend, where a more conventional NR-class loco was substituted.
