Join Maitland local Vicki Kerrigan as she takes you on the journey of Maitland’s steam and industrial revolution through a dedicated Burton Automotive Hunter Valley Steamfest podcast. From bullocks to steamboats and eventually rail, the train line revolutionised travel and transport between Maitland, Newcastle and Sydney.
Reminisce with Vicki about the journey from Maitland to Newcastle on the Red Rattlers and the speed of one of Australia’s most iconic steam trains, the 3801.
The podcast was proudly funded through the Vibrant City Sponsorship Program by Maitland City Council and produced by Susan and Vicki Kerrigan with the support of The University of Newcastle’s FASTLab.
