Are these the Track recording cars?
If so I was talking to some young blokes waiting to get a few pics in the fog at Uranquinty, of the AK Cars.

I think the last time the AK Cars visited Cronulla was back in April this year.

Do you think they will be the same loco's next week when the AK cars go out to Thirlmere and up the Buxton Line ?

They're going on a tour of the southern branch lines, out of Temora, Junee and Cootamundra. PN have the hook-and-pull contract, so I'd imagine an 81 would at least take them south from Sydney, but I'm not sure when they'll switch to branch-line power. I'd imagine Cootamundra or Junee?
