Follow the tracks into a exhibit of locomotive history
It's rare to find many remnants of the railway's past in Sydney but they're not all gone! Head over to the Australian Technology Park and see a few of the old locomotives that are still on display there.
Go for a walk between the railway line and the National Innovation Centre at Eveleigh and you will see the old tracks that head into the old Eveleigh workshops (now renovated into a business and technology centre in Sydney with many offices and businesses inside).
By 1973, there was a sharp decline in the number of repairs and manufacturing because facilities were aging and a number of restrictive practices by unions were hindering the freedoms of other workers.
In 1988, the locomotive workshop closed and the main rail workshops moved to Enfield. In 1996, the workshops were transformed into the Australian Technology Park.
