  • Medium : Kodachrome, slide number 2519
  • Description : Junee has always been an interesting railway scene, partly because Junee is very much a railway town, situtated as it is at the junction of the main south and Narranderra branch line. Here two 422s, one on a special ARHS train, occupy the platform roads, while a 442 performs some shunting of the yard. Incidentally, this photo also shows the difference in front-end lining of the two classes.

  • Date : Jan 1985, catalogued 30 Sep 1999
  • Photographer : John Hurst
  • Medium : Kodachrome, slide number 12987
  • Description : The fascinating yard arrangement at Dombarton. Behind the photographer is a pair of dead-end sidings: the main line to Sydney can be seen descending on the left.

All this is to avoid trains having to start against the grade, as would be required with a more conventional siding arrangement. The loco is uncoupling to start a rather complex manouevre to demonstrate the yard capabilities!
