Remarks: You see me working the controls of a NSWR 46 class. 4602 built by Metropolitan Vickers UK for the NSWR in 1956. One of 40 such beasts introduced when the Blue Mountains in NSW was electrified. 1500 vDC 3400 hp. The load for a 46er climbing the 20 miles of 1 in 33 (3%) being 410 tonnes. In this clip I have a trio and descending the Blue Mountains. They were a buzz to drive, and could do something that the subsequent electrics could not, power in regen. Descending a grade you could set them up in regen brake and at the bottom they would begin to motor up the next hill. Not possible on the 1 in 33 though. Today 4602 is stored in Dorrigo NSW.
Thanks for the comments.
The original location for the hotplate, on which to boil the billy for a cuppa, was under the fireman's side dash. He could give it a nudge with his knee and enjoy a nice hot foot bath. Later, the hot plate was relocated up ontop of the firemans side dash. No kettle to plug in. The kettle appeared after the 46ers were withdrawn from service. The kettle also posed some occupational health and safety issues, tripping over the cord etc.
