Up to date information regarding the restoration of steam locomotive 6029 in Canberra, ACT Australia. Beyer Garratt 6029 is an EX NSWGR locomotive and was a member of the largest, and most powerful class in Australia. The restoration to full working order is being undertaken by volunteers in Canberra.
6029 is owned by the Australian Railway Historical Society, ACT Division and the restoration is proudly supported by their tourist operations and by the generous donations of members and public supporters.
The society operates rail tours out of Canberra with our heritage fleet of steam and diesel locomotives and rolling stock every few weeks.

Something you will not have seen, is the amount of work he puts in at home, repairing and re-manufacturing parts required for the project. Take a look at the photos and you will see that his workshop is being put to very good use, and I think the we can all agree that his help is most welcome...
Thanks Ian, from everyone involved in the project!
