Steamrail - whY not Suburban Tour 2021

On 21 March 2021 Y112 was finally able to lead the 'whY not Suburban Tour' that was first attempted back in 2019. Timetabled to run from Newport via the goods lines to Southern Cross Station, Sunshine, Somerton, Essendon and Westall, the down leg to Sunshine via the Bunbury Street Tunnel was dropped for an express run via the suburban tracks due to late running, and issues with Y112 saw the leg from Somerton to Westall dropped for a direct return to Newport via the goods lines. T356 then took the over train from Newport to Southern Cross and return.
