What's New


On Youtube: “A Steam Train Passes, from the Film Australia Collection, directed by David Haythornthwaite.  Generally regarded as Australia's finest railway film and winner of many awards the world over,  “A Steam Train Passes” is a nostalgic, imaginative essay on one of the majestic but now retired C38 class steam locomotives.

Also on Youtube: “Steam on the Main North”.  Discover the NSW Hunter region’s history as a major transport network with this new documentary, which features footage from the Hunter shot by transport enthusiast and cinematographer Roger McKenzie, and his friend Bernie Kent in 1968.  The film features footage from three locations around Maitland: Fassifern, Hawkmount (between Awaba and Dora Creek), and Thornton.   “Steam on the Main North” is from the Film Archives of Steam in the Newcastle and Hunter Region in the 1960’s.
