Maldon Steam Spectacular - Saturday 26th October 2013 - Part 1 of 3
On Saturday 26th October 2013, Steamrail Victoria in conjunction with the Victorian Goldfields Railway chartered a steam train double headed by Hudson R761 and K190 to travel from Melbourne to Castlemaine and Maldon. The purpose of the day was to exchange locomotive D3 639, which had been on loan to the Victorian Goldfields Railway since June and swap it over with K190. During the day, visitors had the chance to ride behind 5 steam locomotives, these being R761, K190, D3 639, J515 and recently restored J549. Several photostops were organized during the day, allowing passengers to capture the sights and sounds of double headed steam locomotives on the branch line. The return trip back to Melbourne was haulded by locomotives R761 and D3 639, with the Victorian Goldfields Railway owned J549 running alongside on departure from Castlemaine.

Steam Trains by the Seaside - Bellarine Railway: Australian Trains
The Bellarine Peninsula Railway operates a collection of 3'6" gauge locomotives and rolling stock from railway systems all over Australia along a re-gauged section of the former Queenscliff branch line south west of Geelong. This video features former Pozieres haulng the norning service to Drysdale and return follwed by the shuttle to Lakers Siding and then shunting at Queenscliff. Pozieres was formerly a Broken Hill Associated Smelters shunting locomotive at Port Pirie in South Australia. It was built by Andrew Barclay, Sons & Co for the British War department and was one of four sold as war surplus to BHAA in 1919. The locomotive is named after a WWI battlefield on the western front in France. Pozieres had been preserved static at the Puffing Billy museum at Menzies Creek, but was transferred to the Bellarine Railway in 2010 and found to be in good condition. Therefore it was returned to service by late 2011 by the volunteers at the Bellarine Railway. © 2011 James Brook





Steam Locomotive D3 639 Melbourne to Maldon: Australian Trains
On Sunday 23 June 2013, Steamrail Victoria transferred 112 year old steam locomotive D3 639 to the Victorian Goldfields Railway for operation on their Castlemaine to Maldon branch line over the next few months. The D3 replaced K190 which had been on loan since October last year. The transfer move also included sitting car 80BW and the recently completed Pullman lounge car Macedon (originally a V&SAR sleeping car). The video commences with the D3 storming over the top of Sunbury bank in fine style on a freezing cold and clear winter morning, then recovering from steaming problems on the grade out of Riddels Creek. Further shots on the mainline are at Carlsruhe, Kyneton and further down the line towards Malmsbury. Upon arrival at Castlemaine, the D3 was transferred over to platform 3 and the VGR branch before K190 rejoined the mainline and headed back to Melbourne with 67BW. After Y133 arrived at Castlemaine with the regular VGR train, D3 639 ventured onto the Maldon branch for the first time in over 40 years with shots at Winters Flat, Muckleford and finally Maldon. © 2013 James Brook





Zig Zag Railway Steam Train - Australian Trains, New South Wales
Climb aboard for a journey along the famous Zig Zag Railway in the Blue Mountains, New South Wales. Australia. The Zig Zag Railway is a heritage railway at Lithgow in New South Wales, Australia on the site of the famous Great or Lithgow Zig Zag which operated between 1869 and 1910. As built, the line formed part of the Main West line from Sydney across the Blue Mountains and served to lower the line from its summit into the Lithgow valley on the western flank of the mountains. The Zig Zag railway run steam and diesel hauled trains over the Zig Zag for tourists. They are unique in NSW as being the only heritage operator to run everyday except Christmas day. On Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays railmotors are operated. Every Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday a steam loco with train will operate. Sunday has a two train timetable. Special events include a Day Out with Thomas and a Wizards express event held a couple of times per year. During most of the NSW school holidays steam services run every day. In the early 1970's a group of steam enthusiasts decided to restore the Lithgow Zig Zag as a heritage railway due to it's facinating history, the grand nature of the line and it's proximity to Sydney. Thus the Zig Zag Railway cooperative was born. However, the New South Wales Government would not supply heritage locomotives and rolling stock to anyone but their own museum organisation. Rolling stock for the museum thus comes from states other than New South Wales -- Queensland and South Australia in particular. During the early 1970's the track formation although on a different gauge (3 ft 6 in (1,067 mm) instead of the original 4 ft 8 1⁄2 in (1,435 mm)) to accommodate the Queensland and South Australian Rolling stock. In 1975 the new track was complete between Bottom Points and Top Points and the first society train was run. Since then the Zig Zag railway has expanded both it's operations and the new narrow gauge network along the old formation in several sections:

Steam Train in the Northern Suburbs - Essendon Shuttles: Australian Trains
In the late 1990's and early 2000's, the Essendon rotary club used to annually charter a steam train from Steamrail Victoria to operate shuttles from Essendon station, usually one Sunday in April or May. This video features K190 running the shuttles on 9 April 2000. The action commences with the empty cars arriving at Essendon before K190 runs around and then departs for the city. We then head north to the 1 in 50 Glenroy bank near Oak Park for the shuttle to Broadmeadows before photographing the return at Strathmore and again departing Essendon. Also included are some non-refurbished Comeng electric trains on the regular suburban services that day. © 2000 James Brook





Rail Replacement at Musk - DSCR: Australian Trains
A "behind the scenes" look at the way and works gang on the Daylesford Spa Country Railway replacing rail near Musk as part of the works on returning trains from Musk to Bullarto. The 60lb D rail on the curve at the up end of the station had become worn and the opportunity is being taken to replace it with heavier 75lb rail. First the dog spikes were lifted on a number of sleepers, leaving enough holding the rail to run the spike reclaimer over it. The spike reclaimer then ran over the section and the large magnetic wheels pick up the loose spikes. The spike lifters are then run over the section again to remove the remaining dog spikes. The old rail is then lifted off the sleepers and the new rail is moved into position. The sections of rail are then bolted together with fish plates before spikes are hammered into the solid sleepers to take track machines. This will enable sleeper replacement to occur at a later date.
