Locomotive 3801 was officially relaunched at Sydney's Central Station on Friday 12 March 2021 by Her Excellency, the Honourable Margaret Beazley AC QC, Governor of NSW. To celebrate 3801's return, the locomotive is now operating to a variety of destinations across NSW in 2021.
UPCOMING 3801 EVENTS
The 3801 relaunch events program has been suspended due to ongoing public health orders.
We look forward to returning 3801 to service as soon as restrictions are eased.
THE 3801 PROJECT
Locomotive 3801 was built in 1943 by Clyde Engineering and has been in preservation since its retirement from the NSW Railways in 1962.
The locomotive was withdrawn from heritage service in 2007, as it required major boiler repairs. You can read more about the project and the latest updates below.
