South Coast Chopper Tour


On Saturday 31st March 2012, SETS operated the South Coast Chopper tour, featuring recently overhaulsed set C8 which consisted of cars C3598, T4249, T4264 and C3606. We present a selection of images captured on the day.

C8 is crawling into Sydney Terminal's platform 1 to commence the tour, which visited Bondi Junction, Cronulla, Kiama and Port Kembla.

C8 was shunted to the electric storage siding at Kiama whilst tour patrons enjoyed a 90 minute lunch break. This view shows the set returning to the platform to continue the tour after lunch. The train was destined for Sydney to conclude the tour, with a visit to Port Kembla along the way!
