Steamrail - Maldon Experience, October 2013

On October 26, 2013 Steamrail Victoria ran a through train from Southern Cross to Maldon, swapping locomotives at Castlemaine and Maldon. R761 and K190 led the down trip, with J515 replacing the R class on the branch. With a number of photostops along the way, J515 swapped with J549 at Muckleford, with the return trip from Maldon using J549 and D3 639. R761 and D3 639 took the train back to Melbourne, the swapping over the K and D3 being the original reason for the trip.
