Thanks to all that travelled on yesterday's train, with B74 & T 413.
Once again thanks to all the 707 Operations volunteer members, RTBU - LD heritage Crews, V/Line staff and Town folk of Dunolly for making the trains success.
Thanks again To Steamrail Victoria for Carriage 11 AS and SRHC for B 74.
The train was very well patronised with people enjoying a great day at the Ballarat Beer Festival and Dunolly, with also Great support from patronage from Ballarat , Crewsick , Clunes, Talbot and Maryborough. Aproximately 180 passengers were onboard on the Melbourne - Ballarat leg, and the train arrived into Dunolly with all cars well loaded, and 355 customers.
Time wise the schedule was pretty closely adhered to , with arrival back in town about 4" down.
After working an empty transfer train of Carriages Carey and Goulburn - both to Steamrail and ex Vinelander car Carrier wagon from Seymour to Newport for 707 Ops, last Monday evening, B 74 went back light engine from Newport to Seymour at the conclusion of last nights trip.
The Train returning to Newport at the end of the evening was incorrectly routed to the East Suburban lines at Franklin Street, and had to reverse in the Arden Street Sidings and back to Southern Cross, before making another attempt to get back to the West Block at Newport.
Once again thanks to all involved for their support of mainline heritage !!
