If you are able to get to Goulburn (NSW) tomorrow (Monday 3/10/16) it is well worth attending Streamliners 2016. Today was absolutely awesome today and B61, which was especially painted for the event, looks stunning.

Well done to Bernie Baker and everyone involved in the event.  More photos to come during October.
