~~ 4001 RETURNS TO SERVICE ~~
Well the foamers came out of the woodwork on Novemebr 20th the celebrate a very important event in NSW railway preservation history, the restoration to service of 4001 after more than 30 years sitting idle in a museum.
The 40 class were the first mainline diesel used in the state, so her returning to the rails is one of the more important achievements in preservation, some of us may even say rivalling any (non-SMR related) steam loco event. :-)
You know its important when you find renown GM obsessives out for a day of ALCo chasing. G'day there Mr Fisher :-)
The following two shots show 4001 crossing the Cooks River bridge at Tempe Station.
Congratulations and thanks to everyone involved at the RTM.
