The Pichi Richi train was delayed by some last minute trackwork on the causeway, but otherwise a parallel entry with 7GP1 might have been possible. While the Budd Car looked good with maroon and silver panels on the ends under the windows, they didn't ever run like that.
G&WA did well with the two newest GWUs cleaned nicely and ALF24 and CLP16 both cleaned nicely. GM43 came straight off the rail train but was reasonably clean. It was very rusty on the panel strapping, however.
PN had NR19 and RZAY940. The RZAY was immaculate, not the usual state. NR19 had been cleaned, but only from the frame upward.
GSR didn't have display, but "The Ghan" came through an hour after the display closed with NR74 and NR75 in order and both very clean. By chance, NR109 led a following PN freight and it might have been possible to get a shot of all three together since "The Ghan" waited for an eastbound PN freight to clear the line.
It was a good day, but could have been better with more support from the Federal Government.
