South Coast Chopper Tour
A trip to Kiama and Port Kembla in a Chopper set


This tour has been postponed owing to RailCorp requiring a trackwork possession of the line on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th March 2012, between Dapto and Bomaderry (Nowra). This possession was arranged at the same time that SETS was organising this tour with RailCorp's Special Events unit, however the Special Events and SETS were not advised of this clash until Monday 16th January

Come and join SETS as we liberate a Chopper ‘C’ set from suburban working for a one off trip to the end of the wires on the South Coast!

Our tour will feature one of RailCorp’s unique “Chopper” suburban sets which have now transported Sydney commuters for 25 years..

This unusual trip will commence from Sydney Terminal at approximately 8am, then travel to Bondi Junction via the crossovers at North Tempe then Cronulla, before we break through the suburban boundary with an express run to Kiama. Here you can enjoy a 90 minute lunch by the ocean and stroll up to the popular Kiama Blowhole and Lighthouse.

After lunch we will traverse the industrial branch to Port Kembla before returning to more familiar territory, and finally concluding the tour at Sydney Terminal at around 5.30pm. There will be plenty of photo stops along the way. Light refreshments will also be available on board!
