This striking painting features Locomotive 3801. Easily the best known and most admired locomotive in the Hunter Valley of NSW.
Locomotive 3801 was built in 1943 by Clyde Engineering and was recently completely refurbished and officially relaunched at Sydney’s Central Station in 2021.
Known locally as the Newcastle Flyer, the 3801 was faster and more powerful than its predecessors, the 38 class were able to haul more carriages while reducing travel times on the celebrated express services.
To the travelling public, the class embodied the romance of the steam era, of express trains racing through the countryside from city to city.
