8606 Is Back In Action Again


In 2018 SETS partnered with Pacific National to reactivate 8606 for use on heritage excursions and for use by Sydney Trains on their Robel Rail train. This gallery page showcases various images of the loco and covers the major events since the loco returned to Lithgow on the 17th June.
More images will be added in due course.

On Sunday the 22nd July 2018, after being back in Lithgow for 5 weeks, 48120 shunted 8606 out of the Loco Maintenance Centre into the sunshine on Brown's Siding for ventilation, battery charging and limited functional testing. It was a very successful day, and the locomotive's reappearence came as a surprise to many. Photo by Michael Grantham
