Marrickville, Sydney Metrol tunnelling


Although the site is in the suburb of Marrickville those of us who relate more to railway stations will recognise it as the one time Sydney Steel(?) location alongside the Illawarra line just on the St. Peters side of Sydenham station (near the large stormwater retention dam.

For those interested in current light railway operations, there has been a possible sighting of narrow gauge tunnelling locomotives at the Marrickville site for the Sydney Metro. If anyone can go to the Bedwin Road overbridge it should be possible to take some photos from there. It is vital to record what we can as once they go underground, identification will be even harder. Hoping to see some photos before long. Thanks to anyone who can help.
