Let's start with the coldest DEB set I ever traveled in - at Cooma on 14 June 1988.
Another NSW location which I have found to be invariably cold or damp is Wallerawang. Here is a four car set stretching out in front of the power station at that location.
Continuing with the damp theme, it is time for a few from the Southern Highlands. First, a wet Menangle on 3 October 1993...
And a foggy Maldon on 20 November 1993...
And just a dreary Goulburn...
Probably should move to sunnier climes and times. Here are two shots from the Southern Highlands - first Picton and then Moss Vegas.
Moving onto the Coast, on 9 October 1994 a few of us ascended Farmborough Heights to catch this DEB set descending the Hill.
On the flats approaching Coniston, this shot contains the only non-candy car in this blog. It is off to Bomaderry with seven of its mates in the mid-1980s.
DEB sets did millions of miles but they did have a tendency to break down a fair bit - in my memory anyway. Here is one that disgraced itself at platform 1 in Sydney Terminal on 29 February 1992.
Time to finish with a few links to short videos of these beasts from my Youtube channel. First, an up service on the Southern Highlands on 6 September 1993.
Next, a month later a similar service at Maldon - 16 October 1993...
And finally, on the same day a down service arrives at a packed Picton yard (better do a blog on this Saturday morning at some stage!).
Ciao for now!
