Speaking as a Mexican, I have been through Picton station many times, and it has to be one of the most picturesque stations I have ever seen.

I took the opportunity to attend today's event and found it quite enjoyable. The weather proved a drastic improvement over conditions in Sydney.

Sunday 30th of June saw 2705, assisted by veteran diesel locomotive 4490 performing shuttle trips between Thirlmere and Picton on the Southern Highlands Line to mark the 150th anniversary of the opening of Picton Railway Station.

2705 also celebrates its 100th anniversary this year (2013) being built by the Hunslet Engine Company, Leeds in 1913.
