Sunday 18th September

With the Garratt having been moved into the shed during the week, today was mostly spent collecting parts that we need in the next few months and moving them closer to the new work area. As such, not a lot of progress is visible in the photos, but its all work that needs to be done. Welcome also to a few new volunteers, Duncan and Rory.

Jobs that are high on the list include refitting the stokers elevator tube and firing table in the cab, followed by a new floor. The ashpan is receiving attention in Goulburn, and should be ready to fit shortly, along with the grate assembly.

You can see from the photos that our regular steam hauled trains with 3016 are looking great, they are a great way to pass a day if your in the area. It wont be long and we will be able to put 6029 to work at the front of the train... Now that will be nice!
