Heritage steam locomotives R761 and D3 639 ran from Melbourne (Southern Cross) to Geelong via the Regional Rail Link and paralleled between Little River and Corio. The two specials left Melbourne simultaneously before R761 crossed D3 639 at the North Melbourne Flyover. A mainline steam parallel run has not occurred since 2001 and what made this event even more significant was that both trains were the first steam hauled passenger trains over the Regional Rail Link from Deer Park Junction to Manor Junction. Congratulations to Steamrail Victoria including the staff and volunteers past and present for making all operations possible.
