Re: Captain's Flat.

The train part of the Ned Kelly film with Mick Jagger was filmed over two
weeks in August 1969. 1243 was the loco used, renumbered back to 176 for the
film. The Ned Kelly train was two CW cattle wagons converted to passenger
cars, and two CW cattle wagons. The "passenger cars" were at Thirlmere for
many years before being scrapped.

Subject: [LRRSA] Captain's Flat.

My copy turned up yesterday, so a nice pre-dinner read took place.

The film 'Ned Kelly' was filmed in part on the Captain's Flat line. It took
place after the line was officially closed, and the heritage train was used
[I seem to recall].

I've never seen the film, I know it was disaster, and one M. Jagger was the
star. Could the photo of the 13 class being turned have come from that
