RailView 4 - Along the Track in NSW - 1993 / 1994

The RailView series are trackside productions looking at passenger and freight rail operations in NSW and other Australian states.  RailView 4 continues on from RailView 2.

The Programme opens with scenes on the Southern Line, both north and south of Goulburn.  The North is the next area looked at, with Gloucester, Whittingham and Allandale figuring.  The last part of this section consists of a long look at operations north of ‘Murrurundi Mountain”.

The scene now changes to the Western Line, with views of trains at popular locations such as Tummulla Bank, but also at less well known places like Manildra and Peak Hill.  The last section looks at the Illawarra Line, with shots taken at Jasper’s Bruch, Bombo and Croom Tunnel.

Locomotive classes seen, in various combinations: 48, 49, 45 (+ 35), 442, 422, 80, 81, C and G.  XPTs and a DEB set also figure.
