In 1999, the Powerhouse Museum embarked on the restoration of steam locomotive 3265, one of four survivors of the famous P class express engines of the NSW Government Railways. Over the following decade, 3265 was completely rebuilt by a dedicated team of staff and volunteers, with the support of many generous donors. On 20 September 2009, locomotive 3265 was finally recommissioned in its splendid maroon livery of the 1930s.
In this DVD, 3265 has been superbly showcased by the skilled camera work and editing of Powerhouse Museum volunteer Bevan Wall.
Featuring: footage of the restoration at Eveleigh Workshops, line-side sequences of 3265’s launch, and exclusive cab footage taken during the Great Train Race in 2010.
