Easter 1998 saw the Rail Transport Museum conduct a tour from Sydney to Brisbane, via Murwillumbah, and return. Motive power for the trip was guaranteed to make any diesel fan go week at the knees and our very own alcophile, Brad Peadon, was no exception.

Brad followed the train north and took over 180 photos over the weekend. Here are just three from that weekend - all on the return journey.
