The Bacardi Express ran to a new destination when it ran up the Picturesque NSW
North Coast. The Bacardi Express running as 6L61 hauled by 44211 and 4520 lost
4490 before it left Sydney. 6L61 running about 90 minutes late arrived at Nana
Glen were it passed a equally late running 5BM2 hauled by NR98 and NR56.

thanks and no problems.

the only shame was the loss of the 44 class would have been a great shot with all three. i would have loved to have got it on video but my camera does not have a tripod mount so all i coudl do was get stills.
