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.

Sputnik trailer car T4779 is now part of “The Old Train Stop” restaurant near the “Dog on the Tuckerbox” at Gundagai, and can easily be seen from the Hume Highway. A number of ex-NSWGR wooden “R” and “L” type cars are used as Dining cars as part of the restaurant itself. T4779 is shown sitting high and dry during Easter 1998.
