Welcome back to a month of 44s with the Semi-Retired Foamer!
44100 was a historic locomotive, not only in Australia (then the last of the largest mainline loco class in Australia), but worldwide as the last of the 'World Series' built anywhere.
Unlike the first World, which is now preserved in Spain, 100 sadly went on to be scrapped after the 1994 auction - despite efforts top save her.
4486 had just been restored and was out for her first run from Cowra (top shot) to Woodstock (above shot). The locomotive has sinced moved to Sydney, the line long since closed.
