Steaming out of Healesville in the glow of the fading sun.

Image
Almost sunset as the DD class steams it's way onto the Yarra Flats trestle bridge.

Image
An unfortunate failure at Mooroolbark, after the DD melted the fusible plug...

Drifting around the curve into Mooroolbark.

Image
A short time later, and the crew are working the DD class hard as they make their way toward Lilydale with a maximum load goods.

Image
Having just crested the grade at Cave Hill, the driver has shut off steam to coast down to Lilydale.

Image
As the DD shunts some of it's wagons at Lilydale, an E class shunts it's passenger train into the platform.

Image
The crew stay warm in the DD's cab whilst they wait for permission to propel several wagons up to the Cave Hill quarry sidings.

A couple of EE's steam into Lilydale whilst a DD class shunts it's train.

Class leader DD560 sits at Healesville with a special troop train, including a couple of horseboxes with horses bound for the Australian Light Horse, in April 1915.

Image
DD582 arrives with a 'down' goods into 2 road, whilst the troop train prepares for departure.

Image
Crossing the Tarrawarra flood plain, the crew are working the locomotive hard to keep on time.

Image
Having made a spirited run from Yarra Glen, the crew of the special wait their turn at Lilydale as an up Warburton mixed arrives.

Image
Shortly after, the troop train has arrived into '2 road', whilst the mixed sits in Platform 1, and a suburban service arrives into the back platform.


These are from a small session I put together today, for T:ANE, covering a representative troop train set on the 25th of April 1915, to commemorate both the troops who would have travelled on such trains before being sent off to the war; and to the railwaymen who served the country both on the railways, and many who also served in the wars.

Lest We Forget.
