Rm 56 - Middlemarch
Otago Central Branch
- 130 years since the first sod was turned -

24 October 2009
Mixed out of Sutton

Saturday, 24 October 2009: - The first real day of action with steam action in the form of Ab 663, the morning TGL was headed by Ab 663 with DJ3107 on the rear. Ab 663 was cut off the train and then was put on the head of the mixed train which the 'vintage' dieses had brought down.

Highlight of the day was Ab 663 heading the mixed train from Middlemarch to Pukerangi, although due to no turning facilities being at Pukerangi it was run tender first, which i'm not really a fan of - so I gave up after a few spots. Afterwards Ab 663 left light loco for Pukerangi and was then re attached tot he afternoon TGL for the run back to Dunedin.

Saturday evening was the David Maciulaitis night photo session. It was patronised by a few, and was actually a lot better than I had planned. Thanks to those who were involved in turning lights on and such. It was really appreciated by tjose taking part.
