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.

C3250 awaits a 5:13pm departure from Chatswood Platform 1 on Run 122 to Penrith in 1985. T4474 is on the left. The "Non Smoking" signs and white logos were soon to disappear from these cars. The trees behind the train were removed when the site was redeveloped. Unfortunately, these photos are no longer possible with the removal of the terminating road.
