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.

Moving almost at snail’s pace, Leeds Forge motor-car C3148 and Walsh Island trailer T4514 lead set H13 out of Lavender Bay Car Sidings near the water’s edge to the shunting neck at Waverton, thence to North Sydney where the set will take up peak-hour running. This photo was taken in October 1987, not long before 3148 was sent to Carriage Works for an overhaul which saw it fitted with Beclawat windows, a new interior and an Airmate pantograph.
