Comparison of N and G class cabs at Warragul. N464 and G537.
Left: G537 seen later just west of Warragul.

Right: These GY wagons were part of G537's train.

Tait special at the same location.
G 531 waits at Warragul with a short train of 4-wheelers.
N475 appears to be hauling Sprinters in this photo. But in fact it is at a small ceremony at Moe to name the N "City of Moe" and three Sprinters after Lionel Rose, Kirsty Marshall and Michael Tuck who are standing at extreme right.
Five Sprinter railcars make up a longer than usual service to cope with football traffic. Photographed between Trafalgar and Yarragon on an up service.
N464 with an up service in the Haunted Hills east of Moe.
X 34 hauling an up loaded briquette train which included nearly 40 empty G / GY wagons to Melbourne for disposal. This was the last time so many 4-wheel wagons were seen on a train in Victoria. The wagons had been used for Morwell - Dandenong briquette traffic to the wagon tippler there.
Photos taken at Trafalgar, Yarragon and Warragul respectively.
A down Sale passenger service passes under the Princes Hwy at Kilmany.
G516 slowly hauls a sleeper discharge train out of a changing Darnum as VicRoads virtually obliterated the main street in order to install a freeway interchange.
Far left: Night scene. A Sprinter rests at Sale while a Tru-Value Hardware special with Norman, Murray and Victoria cars is parked further down the same siding.
Middle: The hardware special is shunted onto up Sale pass the next morning.
Left: N455 and another N with the combined down Sale pass and hardware special approaching Rosedale.
T392 is at Bosworth Road, Bairnsdale. The Sale - Bairnsdale line was out of use from 1993 to 1999 when log trains returned as far as Hillside. A washaway here prevented workings to beyond to Bairnsdale. This was the first train back to Bairnsdale after the washaway had been filled in.
Yet more views of the Rail Tourist Association's special trip to Sale, Maryvale paper mill and Morwell briquette siding.
