Guest Photographer - Roy Howarth


Roy Howarth is well known in railway enthusiast circles and is a past SETS President and past Editor of SETS Newsletter "Under The Wires". Many of Roy's photographs and articles have previously appeared in UTW and on this Web-site. Roy was one of the founding members of SETS in 1991. He has since gone on to co-author a number of books on Sydney's single-deck red-sets.

This was the first SETS web-site Guest Photographer feature of the new millenium, dating from February 2001. With narrow single-deck suburban trains back in Sydney, for historical interest we again present Roy's selection of wide-body single-deck images taken from his vast photographic collection.

Three car set Y2, consisting of cars C3359, T4456 and C3467, at Carlingford on a quiet Sunday in 1990. Both 3359 and 3467 received overhauls at Goninans at Broadmeadow in the early-1980's, of which 3359 was the first single-deck suburban car to receive an overhaul since Elcar overhauls ceased in December, 1978.
