After 11 years of restoration by 3801 Limited and the Powerhouse Museum, ex NSWGR steam locomotive 3265 (named Hunter) is finally steaming again.
The P class was one of the most widely used class of locos on the NSW Government Railways. 3265 was one loco in that class that was saved from being scrapped. It went through 11 years of restoration in the Large Erecting Shop near Redfern, in Sydney, until July when it went through a number of trials in the very early hours of the morning. In August it was painted in it's original marron colour scheme. The 20th of September was the official luanch of the locomotive and after speeches it made three round trips to Bankstown. The Powerhouse Museum, that owns 3265, is planning to have about six tours with it a year. 3265 also ran the Cockatoo Run on October 4th 2009 and is scheduled to triple head with locos 3237 (from the Lachlan Valley Railway at Cowra) and 3526 (from the NSW Rail Transport Museum at Thirlmere) up the Blue Mountains on November 7th. According to the Powerhouse Museum 3265 and 3830 (the museums other steam loco) will be transfered to the NSW Rail Transport Museum at Thirlmere NSW in the very near future, where it will be available to hire to other heritage rail operators.
It is great to have steam locomotive "Hunter" steaming again and 3265 is already on high demand for tours down the track!
