Here's something you don't see very often.

It would have been nice to see 3801 on there, but she's undergoing boiler restoration.

Normally 6029 (the big articulated Garrett) would pull freight but she's Historic, so it's a lighter passenger consist for her.

By law, the steamers must have a back-up diesel attached. 5917 has 4490 as back-up. The 44 class were phased out in the 80s. 3642 (the green, main-line express engine)is backed up by 4001, which I have photos of a certain Foxaroo posing in front of. The 4000 class were phased out in the mid 60s.

The other back-up diesels are modern coal haulers brought in for the race.
