I wondered about the tank cars following as it doesn't fit the era but I see the reasoning now. Nice shot of a beautiful engine. Is this a regular excursion train?
 
G'day,
Thanks for the remarks on the photo.
Not strictly a regular excursion train in itself, but this locomotive, or a Pacific of similar power/vintage (and train) are chartered 2-3 times a year for excursions lasting between 3-6 days, usually along a branch-line somewhere in SE/W Queensland. Makes for great chasing!

Regards,
Steam-Driven
