Kensei and Doreimus visit Cessnock
EL55 and EL56 crawl through Cessnock with a 7 hour late AS917 empty coal to the Austar Colliery at Pelton. The mine has recently re-commenced production after being closed for a period last year. The lightly laid privately owned South Maitland Railway network has meant Pacific National have had to hire EL class locomotives for this haulage using some very old NHHF 80t coal hoppers.
