4 steam trains racing side-by-side in Australia
Author: LTCerny

The Australian steam festival at Maitland April 30 this year had 4 standard gauge mainline steam locomotives racing side-by-side down the four-track mainline there. The largest of the 4 was 4-8-4+4-8-4 Garratt 6029. Go to The Great Train Race Steamfest 2023 to see many videos on youtube..

Its such a shame that current America is too legally goofed up and indifferent with greed to do this kind of stuff these days.  We have in the past, with many memorable events, but such things seem really far away, going forward.  A great deal would have to change for us to see this level of coordination and interest.  Let us pray.....

Where are you going to find a North American  mainline open with four tracks to drag-race steam?
