The early 1950’s saw the beginning of a remarkable transformation on the railways of New South Wales.
After nearly 100 years of operation, the dominance of steam was finally broken by the introduction of new diesel and electric motive power.
Over the next two decades, steam would gradually give way to a wide variety of diesel and electric locomotives.
