8606 at Lithgow in 2018 SETS 8606 is now operational again !

As the first outcome from relocation of SETS rollingstock from Junee to Lithgow, our 86 class has been recommissioned and has been operated on the electrified network by Pacific National to move Sydney Train's Robel rail train in the Sydney underground on a night per month in October and November 2018. A SETS welcome back passenger trip is being planned - so stay tuned!
