Obviously given we are talking about a style of locomotive now many decades old, even the youngest of which is nearing fifty, tracking down examples of these classic machines can be tricky. Their age has well and truly passed. However, with a little research it’s not impossible to mount a successful hunt for Australian streamliners. In 2019 there are essentially three ways of tracking down our streamliners – the easy, the not so easy, and the outright challenging.
But for now, check out our rough guides below. We’ll tackle this state-by-state, for that is the most likely way we expect travellers and rail fans will tackle this challenge.
Currently there are no regular streamliner operations in either Tasmania or the Australian Capital Territory, although NSW heritage tours could bring a streamliner into the latter on rare occasions.
