Steamfest the great race 2016

Hi All
  Today was the Steamfest Great Train Race with four steam locos vs four tiger 
moths. I decided to go to Warabrook station for the action and was not disappointed.
Four steam trains on four main lines at the same time was a very impressive sight.

4x82s going to Kooragang Island to unload
4490 leading 5917s train to the start line 

GL102 leading 3016s train to the starting area

GL106 leading 6029s train to the starting area
NTAF7079H former ESSO petrol tank wagon built by Tulloch
now used as a water jin for the Garratt
(thanks for spelling lesson Col)

Two of the four tiger moths flying around 
And last but not least 4001 leading 3642s train into position

And they are off and racing

And the obligatory trailing shot 
Till next time

  1. Thanks for sharing Matthew. Looks like I missed out on a great weekend. I'm headed to Newcastle next month for a well-earned break. Any tips for some good train photography spots? Was going to do a little exploring of the rail scene around Newy.
