That is the best steam whistle in NSW by a country mile (sorry, country 1.6093 km ).

I saw the train depart central. Was there really a need for a green-coat to be in every single door way?

Definitely, when it's train load of kids. Safety is paramount, and far better to err on the side of caution. Well done 3801 Ltd.

Further to the obvious safety reason highlighted by Valvegear, how is it a problem that there is a volunteer at every door way? Did it somehow cheapen the experience for the children? The wording "green-coat" makes it sound like they're some kind of ominous secret police. I don't see why "carriage attendant" or another similar term couldn't be used?

Saw the Randwick Childrens Hospital train depart Central with 3642 and crew a lot more low key as the day wasn't about the volunteers, RTM or the sponsors.

So in answer to the question. No. But they love their green coats don't they.

At the risk of repeating myself...

I honestly don't see why it's a matter of discussion? Who the heck cares how many attendants they have in whatever doorways? I honestly don't see what the problem is? Another example of railfans getting their knickers in a knot over NOTHING.

Give me one good reason why they shouldn't. They're doing a job, helping kids to have fun, and enjoying themselves as well. Your statement is as damn stupid as saying that the volunteer firemen at PBR "love their blue overalls, don't they."
Has it occurred to you, in the midst of your carping, that the green coat ( or purple stockings or orange pants ) immediately identifies an official to someone who may need assistance?
I am 100 percent with Raichase; why get your knickers in a twist over something so puerile and trivial?
