    Steam train enthusiasts are crazy about the M class locomotive, but when the machines arrived in Tasmania 70 years ago, no-one wanted to drive them.

    Historic 'Locomotive 3801' makes comeback in Sydney after being out of sight for a decade


    Historic 'Locomotive 3801' makes comeback in Sydney after being out of sight for a decade - ABC News

    An iconic and widely adored steam locomotive from the 1940s has returned to the tracks today to the delight of rail lovers across NSW.

    For the first time in almost 14 years Locomotive 3801 will run again, offering passengers a chance to return to a bygone era of rail travel.

    The train is the last streamlined steam locomotive in the state and arguably the country's most famous as it's the only engine to have visited all mainland states and territories.

    If I remember correctly, only the first few of the C38s were streamlined (wartime austerity). And there was no detectable difference in performance for the ones that were not streamlined.
