Puffing Billy's Walhalla Weekend

Puffing Billy's Walhalla Weekend:

In May 2010 Victorian steam history was made as 7A returned to the Walhalla railway and hauled a series of special trains as part of Centenary celebrations for the line. Normally based at the Puffing Billy Railway in the Dandenong Ranges, 7A was taken by road to the Gippsland Hills on a short term loan to the Walhalla Goldfields Railway.

Many never thought an nA would ever run on the short tourist line which traverses the Stringer's Creek Gorge on 1 in 34 grades. However a pioneering agreement between the managements of the two railways saw history made over four days as 7A ran light loco and train test runs and six passenger trains.

Steam Media cameramen captured ALL the action associated with the visit, beginning with 7A double heading to Menzies Creek with 8A on a delivery run. Next day 7 was placed on a road low loader & transported to Walhalla. Test runs were made on the following two days and all these runs are covered. The weekend saw six special passenger trains operate in a variety of weather conditions and every train is featured at length.
