Stored 73's

A couple of stored privately owned 73 class locos 7333 and 7319 await restoration amongst other rolling stock and locos within the Goulburn rail heritage centre on 22-10-18.

Of the 50 x 73 class built for NSWGR by Walkers Limited in Maryborough between 1970 and 1973, only 10 have been scrapped , despite most of the class being withdrawn between Feb 1986 and 1990.

8 have been preserved by preservation society's, some owned by private company's and the balance in Queensland, some rebuilt and used on cane trains on 610mm gauge while other units went to Queensland and still stored.
