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.

8606's rebuilt number 2 end pantograph was refitted to the loco on Tuesday the 24th September 2019 at Delec. The loco was then moved to Clyde to be near the Progress Rail Maintenance Centre and be under the overhead for testing, to enable further minor works and internal cleaning. The loco is shown operational on overhead power with both pantographs raised on the afternoon of Friday the 27th September. Photo by Hugh Burns
