Once the tram motor had all it's fitting replaced, it was the trolleybuses turn for some attention. We carefully towed it out of the display hall with the Matador so it could have a thorough wash and tidy-up. So now everything is ready for the big day tomorrow. I'm so looking forward to it! :)

Some photos from today:

Looks like you blokes are having a bucket load of fun Mark.

 

Great pics, I really should visit the other side of the country more often than I have. :)

 

Cheers Ted

Some sad news, the Richmond Vale Railway Museum was hit by an out of control bushfire yesterday. They have confirmed the loss of 3 stainless steel passenger cars, one brake van, 90% of the non-air coal hoppers, all other freight vehicles and about 500 sleepers. However there has been no damage to any of the locomotives, timber passenger cars or buildings.

Some pictures from the Maitland Mercury.

This is now the 7th preservation group in NSW to have suffered major losses by fire, but Transport Heritage NSW specifically refuses to fund fire protection through its grants program. (rant over)

This has been postponed as the C17 had a sticking regulator during the move from Ipswich to Mayne.

Hunslet 1239 of 1917 (ex-ROD 327) has been cosmetically restored and is now on permanent static display at the Workshops Rail Museum. It was of 15 purchased by the Queensland Government in 1920 to work sugar mills, 5 of which have been preserved.
