Steamrail - Tocumwal March 2013

On March 9, 2013 Steamrail ran a a 11 car train from Melbourne to Tocumwal and return with locomotives S303 and S313. The entire down trip was a few hours late, the train having been timetabled by V/Line into platform 3 at Southern Cross where two S classes cannot fit! After all of the extra shunting was required, V/Line decided that a 40 minute window before the down Shepparton departed was not enough, so we got held until their departure at 0914.

S303 leads the up empty cars move through South Kensington
