Steam train

This is my world today: A steam train.
While waiting in the Canberra’s station for our train to return to Sydney, we saw this train approaching, then I just grabbed my camera and stood closer to snap up this marvellous locomotive train. This train is more than a 100 years-old Locomotive 3016 and ran Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 of April, between Queanbeyan and Canberra stations.

Steam Locomotive 3016
Superheated steam locomotive 3016 began its life in 1903 as a S(636) class 4-6-4 tank engine. It was used to haul Sydney suburban trains.

These locomotives were designed to handle Sydney's increasing suburban traffic over heavy grades on the Northern, North Shore and Illawarra lines.

The first batch of 35 locomotives (including 3016) was built by Beyer Peacock and Company, UK, and placed in service in 1903-04.
