Heritage Express operated their Melbourne Cup Aurora to Melbourne arriving into Victoria, Monday morning and headed back Tuesday evening to Sydney.
I got a couple of shots of the train Monday afternoon, firstly at Brooklyn then at McIntyre Loop, and on Tuesday in the morning at Wallan, Summerhill Road and Melbourne. Having had the opportunity to visit the train at Dynon yesterday, I was very much impressed with the setup of the train. It is great to compare train operations between how things are done down here in Victoria with that in New South Wales, so plenty of ideas can be shared between the states.
It was great to see cooperation between members of the NSWRTM along with Steamrail's Chairman, Mark and Steamrail's Operations Manager, Les who were rostered on this train throughout the day as the Locomotive Crew (both being qualified drivers).
