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.
