Steam trains operated in the Muswellbrook area until the early 1970s. While the main line expresses ended in the mid 1960s, there were still some freight workings and the Colliery lines, plus the all important Merriwa branch.
Here is a selection of photos from “Northern Exposures” a full colour pictorial which includes high quality colour photos from the time plus stories on steam operations, including a trip to Merriwa.
