I have a huge soft spot for these Diesels.
I used to live in Campbelltown NSW in the late 80s / early 90s, and used to catch this very engine for a 2 stop (Liverpool, Strathfield) trip to Central.
Having this huge engine up front is an experience in itself, the sheer raw power is amazing.
I remember we used to fly through Minto station in 3 seconds flat.
Having a father who worked on the railways, i once got to walk through the walkways between the 2 main engines inside this beast, my hair was literately standing on end
Love those days...
