Steam, Diesel and Electrics - Memories

Postby LocoLes » Tue Jan 05, 2016 8:45 pm

Continuing my 'memories' series mainly around Perth, this rail post includes some museum visits photographed during several holidays in Western Australia between 1968 and 1997.
In 1968 my interests were mainly buses as seen in the previous post but I managed to capture on film one of the Craven built suburban DMUs also one of each of the later ComEng and Goninan sets during a further visit. The new EMUs entering service were an attraction in the 90s and the Hotham Valley steam specials operating the service to Gosnells Railway Market coincided with a Perth visit. Hope these bring back some memories for fellow enthusiasts. :mrgreen:

Cheers!
