Peter Neve :

59 CLASS ON GOODS TRAIN AT CASINO
During a short stop at Casino while travelling to South Brisbane on No. 3 Express on Saturday 29/09/1962, my train passed a south-bound goods waiting to depart, hauled by oil-fired 5916. Maybe it had just arrived from Clapham or Yeeronpilly, maybe it was bound for Grafton - maybe both!
I particularly like this image showing the driver in the casual uniform of the time, complete with his ciggie! Casino's original overhead booking and parcels office is just evident.
Memories rekindled. 🧐

Peter Neve :

No. 3 BRISBANE EXPRESS AT CASINO IN 1962:
When I first visited Brisbane in September 1962 as part of a small group of NSW ARHS members to numerically (ie – financially!) support the newly founded Queensland Division is running a steam-hauled one day excursion, our party chose to travel on No. 3 Express from Sydney, rather than the air-conditioned No. 1 Limited. Why, I don't know now!
No. 3 had a departure from Sydney at 1855 – the composition on that Friday evening, 28/09/1962, was, from the rear: MHO vans 2319 & 2314, 2nd sitter FS.2121, 1st sitter BS.2156, sleepers MAL.663 & MAL.541, de-luxe sleeper KAM.503, BS.2078, FS.2110, 2081, 2088 & 2016 – 12 vehicles for around 415 tons (give-or-take!) ... entrusted to d/e 4506 for the full journey. 4816 was attached in the lead at Casino for the remainder of the trip to South Brisbane. One of the MALs may have been for our group.
My photo of No. 3 at Casino with 4816 now attached in the lead of 4506. Saturday 29/09/1962. Of particular interest are the fettlers' trikes and trailers in the foreground, also the Down Dock and to the extreme left can just be seen the back platform into which the Murwillumbah branch "through cars" have been detached off the rear of No. 3 and placed there to await their locomotive. Nominally, these would have been one of the MHO vans, FS2121 & BS.2156, while sleeper MAL.663 would also be removed and stabled for the return overnight trip back to Sydney. Notice also that the lead FS is off the platform, so passengers would need to walk back through to at least the next car to exit onto the platform – unless the train had pulled up in two stops. I have no recollection now, whether this was the case!
In 1957, the scheduled composition for No. 3 was shown as (for weekdays): MHO (detached at Casino for Murwillumbah), MHO, TAM (car 9) detached Casino), TAM (10), BS (11), FS (12), FS (13), FS (14) Fridays only, BS (15 & FS (16) detached at Casino for Murwillumbah). Somewhat similar would have applied until the introduction of two-car diesel unit 638/738 to Murwillumbah line, of which I shall post a photo of mine later.
Some memories rekindled, and details - with the aid of my Diary. Enjoy! 🧐
