Would anyone know where 8501 is currently stored please? It seems to me nobody really knows where on earth it is?
I have asked RailCorp and sadly they have no idea where it is, I have also sent an email to both SETS and ARHS and they have been so ignorant and never responded to my emails so I will ask here hoping someone can tell me where it is please
I am aware that 8507 is also preserved, however I am unable to get to Dorrigo, if there was a bus service running hourly from Coffs Harbour railway station it maybe possible to get to Dorrigo and return to Coffs Harbour to get the train back to Sydney but like I said there's no way for me to get to Dorrigo
If however, 8501 it's stored at either Werris Creek or Lithgow I have no problem going there but accessing either railway yard would be impossible for me as I am sure both RailCorp and the ARTC will say a clear NO
Sadly it's not at the Junee Roundhouse Museum as I have contacted them today, if it was I would surely go there next week some time
Anyway, if someone knows where Mr. 8501 is stored please let me know any help would always be appreciated or if you have a full side photo (the side with the 4 doors) which is is the side that no plan drawing exsist, this also would be grateful
Thanks in advance
