Where would you suggest good filming locations could be for the return between Bathurst and Lithgow?
  neale Station Staff

I forgot this train was heading out to Bathurst yesterday & got a nice supprise when it went past the back of the workshop. I also noticed a few grunsels snapping pics of it & the B class at Bathurst station. The one day I didnt have a camera with me so I didnt get any pics. Has anyone got photos?

The curves at Sodwalls would be the best place between Bathurst & Lithgow. Heres a good video from that area of a train heading towards Bathurst. It looks to be taken near the Station in Sodwalls but the train will be heading the opposite direction so you may need to get there early & suss out a good spot

The Station at Rydal is also a nice spot but you will probably not be able to shoot both locations.

Thanks for uploading. Great to see (and hear) the 36 operating on a mainline tour solo with no diesel at the rear Smile

And before anyone says anything, I understand why the RTM use diesels on their heavier trains...

Excellent video, and I see your point about what a good spot it is. But, at 6 degrees, I reckon I'd rename the place Sodoff.Laughing

Thanks for that it looks like a pretty good location.  I did find some locations using google street view a while ago.  Just interested to see what first hand experience people have.

May I also ask what movement "6L72/72" is on the 9th?
  lsrailfan Chief Commissioner

Location: Somewhere you're not
6L72 would be the Diesels Transferring the rest of the Passenger Cars from Orange back to Thirlmere.
