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 awaits departure from Lithgow down yard for Clyde in Sydney as light engine on X714 on 27th October 2018. The locomotive was previously electrically operated light-engine on the main line almost exactly 13 years earlier! Photograph by Hugh Burns.
