C30 class 4-6-4T 3135 at the temporary NSW Rail Transport Museum at Enfield in the early 1970s (at that the stage more or less just an accumulation of locos and rolling stock just waiting to be restored and properly put on display):

These two unfortunately, are no longer in steam, and are seen here rusting away at Enfield depot in the early 1970s.
