One year on: a look back at the 3801 Sydney Harbour Bridge crossing

One year ago today, Transport Heritage NSW made history by crossing the Sydney Harbour Bridge for the first time with iconic steam locomotive 3801.

On the first anniversary of this monumental event, we are pleased to make the journey available for all to enjoy and experience through real-time coverage of the crossing. This amazing short film follows 3801 along its journey from Central Station, through the Sydney Underground for the first time, and across this iconic structure.

The short film is available to watch above.

Locomotive 3801 will be at Central Station for cab visits for Transport Heritage Expo this weekend - for more information, visit

We are grateful for the assistance our friends and colleagues at Sydney Trains and Transport for NSW for their support with making this historic event possible.
