92-15. 3075. Glenroy. Some would say the perfect combination of hobbies in this picture. The TCS girls had done a marvellous job catering (and coping) on what must have been a very tedious journey.

92-20. 3616. Junee Loco. Note the Geisel Ejector funnel. This loco was to be used on the next portion of the journey, but I came back to Melbourne on the Spirit Of Progress.

 

92-21. 3075 & 3801. Junee Loco. Some gunzels were here discussing if the Victorian K-class loco would bring the train home from Albury as planned when a NSWGR fitter overheard them. Quite surprised, he didn’t think we would get any K at all as there weren’t any left running. A slight pause, then it “clicked”. Wrong K, the last of the 55’s had run the previous year. We Victorians weren’t used to hearing NSWGR locos referred to alphabetically like Victorian engines.
