A Steam Train Passes 1974 NSW Acclaimed Documentary Part 1

Roughly analagous to the BTF film The Elizabethan Express, this is an award-winning documentary about NSWGR #3801.  I particularly love the first 4-5 minutes, showing the footplatemen servicing the engine and raising steam.  More than anything else, it just shows the level of preparation necessary to get a lump of cold iron and steel to move at all, let alone run at 80mph.  Enjoy! 

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.
