Jan. 24 1981 was opening day for Melbourne's underground. Regular loop service was preceded by this train that took dignitaries for a trip through the Burnley tunnel making this the first passenger carrying train through any part of the underground. Unbelievably I was the only person at the tunnel entrance! (The track on the left is the uncompleted Clifton Hill loop track)
