Featuring New South Wales from 1978 to 1992. Hi Rail Vehicles...  Our opening feature begins with Land Rovers on rails buzzing about on Sydney's underground near Kings Cross. A Toyota is on rails at Bombo on the South Coast, while nearby we take a brief look at part of the railway quarry.  More Hi Rail as a utility truck whizzes along the Mount Thorley line, and in 1992, a Mercedes Benz Unimog is at work on rail on the Carlingford line. Bethungra Feature...  A sorry opening with the burned out ruins of the signal box, however we soon move to the famous Bethungra Spiral where we cover in some detail this fascinating trackwork where the up line spirals 360 degrees, crossing under the down line and over itself. Trains seen on Bethungra Spiral are mainly 81 class Clyde GM, including one in Bicentennial colour, plus XPT, Vline G and a pair of 48 class light engines.  One of the trains is the Intercapital Daylight.

Hunter Valley Steam
TPRHVS

Hunter Valley Steam

Featuring Destiny of Steam & Steam Returns to the Hunter Valley Destiny of Steam features South Maitland Railways (SMR) who retained steam as their motive power long after other Australian railways had switched to diesel power. This is a film with a quite different approach from most other railfan videos. While there is plenty of action, mostly with true ambient sound, the dialogue is presented by employees (driver, fireman, signalman, supervisor), telling their stories first hand of their lives on the railway (what fascinating stories they are), over a visual background of the ever busy locos on passing coal trains. The locos featured in the film are the 10 class 2-8-2 tank engines, and these are superbly captured in glorious colour on 16mm film in a truly professional presentation. The period covered is that when the 4 wheel wooden non-air braked wagons were giving way to government steel bogie wagons, and there was much speculation as to the future of SMR. Fi..

Drivers View to Kandos

Enjoy the view from the driver's cab, onboard and lineside. Few lines are more picturesque than the Mudgee Line and fortunately in 1993 some of the better parts in the section are still open, albeit for freight only, between Wallerawang and the entrance to Kandos cement works. Rail motor 402 being used as a radio test vehicle is our means of transport as we first travel North from Wallerawang, passing the site of former Portland station, Baal Bone Colliery junction to Ben Bullen where we go into the siding to cross a cement train hauled by a pair of 80 class Alco powered units. We head onward as the sun sets, its last rays illuminate some of the rocky outcrops for which this line is famous. (This night segment has been edited to show only highlights). Soon the rail motor's headlight shines on cuttings and tunnel walls, eerily illuminates the Brogans Creek water columns, (remnants of the steam days) and the semaphore at Clandulla.

Railway Panorama Number 5

Featuring NSW trains around the turn of the decade 1990. Flying Scotsman and 3801 returned from Victoria to NSW in December 1988 and we view the two as they blast out of Strathfield on the Main & Local tracks in the late afternoon.  Flying Scotsman is then covered on trips on the NSW Main South where its 3 cylinder exhaust beat may be clearly heard on the rising grades. On another trip the differing speeds of big wheels and small are very obvious as Scotsman double heads with 5910 2-8-2. Regular Canberra XPT, Southern Highlands and Canberra Expresses enter the picture too. Richmond Line's 125 Birthday celebrations of the extension from Riverstone on 2 December 1989 find triple CPH class wooden railmotors running the regular passenger service, AND keeping the tight timetable (just!) with lots of full throttle running, while 3001 4-6-0 tender loco alternates with 3112 tank on special passenger trains. A double head run is especially picturesque. The end is just one ..

On 28 October 1989, 4-6-2 Flying Scotsman and 4-6-0 3642 headed south along the picturesque main southern line to Moss Vale on the NSW Southern Highlands,  with the unusual arrangement of 3642 leading. Our camera caught the train at various locations between Picton and Moss Vale, then on the connecting line  between Robertson and Moss Vale with 3642 alone, and again double heading on the return run at Bowral. Next, two 4-6-2s as Flying Scotsman & 3801 are captured double heading heavy special trains in the Sydney suburbs at Beecroft, Wentworth Park, Meadowbank and Boronia No1 tunnel. We move then to Cowra, where the Lachlan Valley Railway has leased the  former Cowra - Forbes line, and 4-6-0 No. 3026 heads a passenger train from Cowra Station to Holmwood, with some very hard work starting on the grade from  Caravan City.

Phantom Steam

On Easter weekend 1992, NSW Rail Transport Museum ran a grand steam tour to the "Phantom Of The Opera" stage show in Melbourne. Museum locomotives 4-6-0 No. 3642, resplendent in green livery, led 2-8-2 No. 5910 in shiny black with white and red trim, hauling a train of 14 cars from Sydney to Albury. Here the train was split, with 5910 remaining in Albury for local tours associated with the 30th anniversary of the opening of the standard gauge to Melbourne. 3642 continued to Seymour with half the previous train, the other half being taken  by a diesel. At Seymour the passengers detrained from the sleeping cars which went empty to Melbourne behind diesel G521. 3642 coupled to the the sitting  cars, collected the passengers and headed to Melbourne. 3642 then did a  parallel run with Steamrail's broad gauge R766 from Melbourne to Seymour and return.

Branching off to the north from the main western line at Blacktown, the Richmond line has four photogenic bridges. South Creek Bridge was a steel span with timber trestle approaches, and Rickaby's Creek trestle was a long timber trestle. These have been captured on video, along with their replacement concrete structures. Two more bridges over roads near Windsor remain timber structures and are of course covered. Several lower quadrant signals on the line had the somewhat uncommon McKenzie & Holland ornate finials, and these are seen in good close up.

Railway Panorama Number 4

Featuring ALCo's at work. The first main line diesel electric locomotives used in New South Wales, Australia, were designed by the American Locomotive Co., built by the Montreal Locomotive Works of Canada and powered by Alco diesel engines. These entered service from 1951 as the 40 class, and began the demise of steam locos in NSW. All later classes were built in Australia, and of the subsequent loco classes 40 to 49, the following were Alco powered:- 40, 43, 44, 45 & 48. Subsequent Alco powered classes were:- 442, and 80. This video looks at all the Alco powered locos, generally in the order in which they were introduced, however, as the majority of the locos remain in service (at the time of filming), with only the 40 and 43 classes being totally withdrawn, later scenes show all remaining classes at work. There are nostalgic scenes of the midday Newcastle Flyer with a 40 class, a pair of 44s on the Spirit Of Progress, a 48 on end-platform wooden suburban cars, a good..

Newington Navy Armament Depot
ROWNNADD

Newington Navy Armament Depot

Unknown to the great majority of the population, Since 1909 there has been a very interesting 610mm (2 ft) gauge railway quietly operating on most days at the Royal Australian Navy Armament Depot "Newington" (now named Newington Armoury) a mere 16 km West of Sydney, right next to the Olympic site, but well hidden from public view. Until recently, access by the public was virtually impossible, and it was not until 1997 that our cameras were allowed in to record the final period of the railway in use under Navy security control. The first building on the site, a powder magazine built in 1897 for the Royal Marine Garrison, is still there and in good order.  Federation came in 1901 and the site came under the control of the Commonwealth Naval Forces, followed in 1921 by the Royal Australian Navy.  We are very fortunate indeed that the Navy had strict control, keeping the base largely historically intact. Around 1996, the R.A.N. began a slow but certain move out of the d..
