My brother and I were chasing this train to Robertson when we were stopped at the level crossing. I was in the passenger seat and got off a series of images of the train as it passed where I sat in the car. When I was doing the post processing and noticed that major elements in the image were sharp as a tack and there was a blur in the wheels it gave the image an extra dimension.

3642 is one of the 36 Class steam locomotives once operated by the New South Wales Government Railways. The 36 Class were built in 1926 by Clyde Engineering and were designed to haul express trains such as the Newcastle Flyer until superseded by the newer, more powerful 38 class in the mid to late 1940s. 3642 is preserved in operational condition by the NSW Rail Transport Museum. 2 other 36 Class engines remain, Eveleigh built 3609 and Clyde built Giesel Ejector fitted 3616. They are both on display at the New South Wales Rail Transport Museum, Thirlmere NSW.
