Here's a little Alco acceleration for you folks at home.
On 24 October 1991 we arrived in a rainy Quirindi to find 3505, 4493 and 3513 ease to a halt. This is what we had driven hundreds of miles for, and now it was raining.
I was sent out to get a photo.The driver flicked the headlight on for (I'd like to think) a better photograph.
And thankfully the Senior Train Hunter hopped out into the rain. Just as well he did, for our obliging driver turned it on, and turned it up!
Thank you driver!
