The Blue Mountains Flyer (20 October 2019)

The NSW Rail Museum ran a special heritage train trip to the Blue Mountains and onto Lithgow to celebrate 150 years of the railway line to Bowenfels. The Beyer-Garratt 6029 was used which was & is the Southern Hemisphere’s largest operating steam engine.

In the afternoon we joined a number of people to watch the 6029 as is powered up the escarpment.
