Beyer Garratt 6029 is an EX NSWGR locomotive and was a member of the largest, and most powerful class in Australia.

What happens when an armament fitter gets interested in steam?
He has transformed the old, neglected lubricators into what I suggest is easily better than new condition.
Have a look at the before pictures, and compare them with the after... You will see what I mean! And then look at how complex they are... Every output is an individually metered, self contained pump, and Ian has rebuilt every one...
Well done Ian!
