Love the old iron :)

Weird seeing the diesel though, go figure :)

Steam engines on Government lines must have a diesel engine as back up Just In Case. Usually they take a vintage diesel but 6029 is too heavy for the old diesels. They had to use a new unit. And 6029 was too big for Dubbo Yard - they couldn't turn her and shunting was an issue.
