The new company assumed responsibility for coal haulage and shunting operations for most collieries on the South Maitland coal fields. Full details can be obtained from [i]South Maitland Railways by Peter Attenborough from page 15.

Busy weekend of trains running including:

No.18 and 3 cars shuttling between East Greta Junction and near to Maitland Station

621/721 running between East Greta Junction and (near to) Cessnock

3 x CPH running between East Greta Junction and Abermain

Riding that 620 class was like taking a step back 30 years, it is in such original condition.

And undoubtedly more comfortable than anything on the tracks now!
