On Wednesday December 10, railcar set 629/729 made its first journeys under Goodwin Alco ownership on its delivery run from the Broadmeadow RailCar Depot to Paterson, the home of our friends, The Rail Motor Society.
Collected by Goodwin Alco's own locomotive 4833, the event free trip saw the consist arrive safely at Paterson at approximately 1300hrs.
Thanks to the generosity of TRMS, 629/729 will enjoy an initial restoration period at Paterson prior to its next outing.
Goodwin Alco wishes to thank the many oldmates who assisted making this move possible particularly those from RailCorp, TRMS and The Lachlan Valley Railway Co op.
"Put away", 4833 and 629/729 pause briefly at Mindaribba to allow an up freight to pass whilst enroute to Paterson.
Off the main line at Paterson, 4833 shunts 629/729 up to the TRMS depot whilst class leaders 621 & 721 look on.
