Father's Day Bankstown Loop Shuttles

 
  slacker Train Controller

Hi all,

I was just wondering if anyone could post a copy of the run sheet for the Fathers Day Bankstown loop shuttles featuring LVR's 3237. Would be great to know where it'll be at what times so I can get some photos!

If you'd like information on the shuttles the 3801 limited website has it all there: http://www.3801limited.com.au/mlinebs.htm

Thanks in advance!

Awesome pictures, but I would like to ask, is that rust on the front of the loco?

This is a result of the loco being worked hard - it 'burns' the smokebox door. It's nice to see, actually, a steam loco showing signs of what it was built to do.

I saw the drafts a little while back but the official Railcorp notice hasn't been released.
Running is several Wallerawang-Katoomba shuttles, 3237 and diesel tbc with a dinner train to Bathurst on Saturday night.

I agree with MrNathan - I love seeing the 32 at the moment, people need to remember that heritage trains, while they look nice with fresh paint and polished buffers, never looked like that when they were operating in real life.

Now, I'm the last person who goes out and tries to get "historical recreation" photos of heritage trains - that's just pointless. However, it is nice to see the loco looking REAL. I have no doubt that whatever the loco looks like on the outside, it is being looked after well and will continue to bring pleasure to many people for years to come.

Sorry if this sounds nasty or anything, but while working past this service I couldnt help but take notice of a very dangerous act taking place.

While this train was entering the Illawarra dive, and completely ignorant of the signal/staunchions coming up on them, a group of...rail photographers decided that that would make an excellent opportunity to extend their arms and bodies as far as they could to take a photo of my passing train.

How one of them didnt lost their head, as I looked away as I could see the signal coming, I dont know but please, use some common sense. Dont try and extend yourselves too far past the train, and be aware of whats coming behind you.

Besides that, looked like everyone onboard was having a great time Very Happy

While we all like to pull up the window and have a gander at what is going on, Although I assume these people were at a door, where the top half of it opens up , One should always take care of these things, If anything should happen It could be the end of Heritage Tours

Kind Regards

Congradulations to ALL volunteers who assisted in anyway, shape or form for such an exciting outing to occur!
I wasnt able to attend this one. But I would like to give my regards to all who contributed to making the day a great sucess!

I love the 01 Limited colour scheme with the Indian Red and the cream band around the windows!

Cheers
