The Transport Heritage Expo will kick off the rare experience of the Great Train Race which will include travelling behind your choice of Australia's largest operating steam locomotive 6029, or recently restored steam locomotive 3265, as you race through Sydney's Inner West to Strathfield and return. This event is one you do not want to miss!

not much chop for those who live north of Sydney ie..those places known as Newcastle and the Central Coast, hoping to get public transport to Central to enjoy an event based on public transport? Sorry, track-work, so it's a crowded bus, a longer journey and stop starts in traffic for us. Better planning would have been in order.
