Twas a sad, yet happy day really, the day of the Cardiff auction. So many good old ALCos went to scrap, but many more than though managed to survive. Neither 4469 or 4482 were among the lucky ones though and are now just consigned to history.
The application of the yellow lining would see her return to traffic and also be a part of the historic last loco hauled passenger service from Goulburn.
Possibly one of the 44s that haunted me most, good ol 4467 is seen sitting at Hope Street with the ex-fiancee Julie hanging off the side.
4460 is seen arrivingat Sydney Terminal on another Goulburn passenger.
