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.

C3288 and T4501 in weekend storage at Rockdale platform 1 in mid-1988. C3288 was one of a handful of motor-cars to receive private contractor overhauls (in this case at Landown Eng. of Taree), but not have Beclawat windows installed. The body of this car is now at the western Sydney suburb of Castlereagh.
