Prototype History Introduction

The C38 class was a class of steam locomotives built for the
New South Wales Government Railways in Australia.


Built between January 1943 and November 1949, the 30
locomotives in the class were designed to haul express trains. 
They were the only New South Wales locomotives to use the 
Pacific 4-6-2 wheel arrangement and were the last steam
locomotives built for passenger train operations.


The C38 class was first conceived in the 1930s being heavily 
influenced by North American and other streamlined locomotives 
of the time. The NSWGR needed a locomotive to eliminate the
complications of double heading required on a number of fast 
interstate passenger trains.


Among the services they initially hauled were the Central West 
Express, Newcastle Flyer, Melbourne Limited, Reverina Express 
and South Coast Daylight Express as well as the overnight mail
trains. Because of their axle-load they were confined to operating 
between Port Kembla, Albury, Dubbo and Maitland.


Following the arrival of diesel locomotives in the 1950s the C38s 
began to haul lesser passenger and freight trains and  were gradually
phased out.    In April 1962 3830 and 3813 hauled the in-augral 
standard gauge Spirit of Progress from Albury to Sydney. In
August 1970, 3801 hauled the Western Endeavour to Perth 
following the completion of standard gauge Trans Australian 
Railway with 3813 assisting as far as Port Pirie. In April 1988, 
3801 again operated to Perth during the Australian Bicentenary.

The first C38s were withdrawn in 1961 and the last was withdrawn 
in December 1970.
