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 the second of May 2019, 8606 heads E702 passing through the historic Museum Station on its final night for the week on the City Inner, heading to Circular Quay to commence dropping rail from Circular Quay to Town Hall. Unlike most locomotives, electric loco 8606 is quite at home as a frequent visitor to the underground, where it runs on one pantograph due to limited tension in the overhead wiring.
