|New South Wales Government Railways 4-6-0 No. 3028T||Posted by: Paul Bird on 2006-02-15 08:27:04.087|
3028 was built in 1903 by Beyer Peacock. It entered service with NSWGR as a 4-6-4 tank locomotive, but retained a saturated boiler. But between August 1928 and 1933, this was one of 77 former C30 tank locomotives to undergo this major change. These converted locomotives work many branch lines such as Merriwa, Glenreagh to Dorrigo and Moree to name of a few These locomotives also did main line duties. 3028 was sold to Dorrigo Steam Railway & Museum in October 1974. It along with 5069 was used to operate the re-opening train to Dorrigo in 1986. The locomotive is now stored in black oil at the museum. It is likely that this loco will see service again when the museum get's to operating locos and trains again.

This locomotive is now located at Dorrigo Steam Railway & Museum. DSR&M has all the parts that were stored at NSW Rail Transport Museum at Thirlmere. The locomotive is very slowly being put back together and will go on display with DSR&M once put back together as best as possible.

|United Railways of Yucatan 4-4-0 No. 4||Posted by: peter m. preston on 2006-02-13 18:47:13.207|
What a surprise when the rebuilt crew tore down UdeY No. 251 that would become No. 4. It turn out that the unfortunate engine's frame is broken in half.
This problem is cause by a repeated use on maximum tonaged trains. Frame problems, escecially, are very hard to deal with as the frame's near-perfection is crucial to bearings running cool and lasting while.
There was a fifth steamlocomotive UdeY No. 52 also purchased. She was on a pedestal in a park. Being the oldest of the five there was too many problems to rebuild and was scrapped. I think it was frame problems and brittle metal that doom her, but not sure.
|New South Wales Government Railways 4-6-0 No. 3016||Posted by: Paul Bird on 2006-02-13 18:29:17.34|
3016 was built in 1903 by Beyer Peacock. It entered service with NSWGR as a 4-6-4 tank locomotive. But between August 1928 and 1933, this was one of 77 former C30 tank locomotives to undergo this major change. These converted locomotives work many branch lines such as Merriwa, Glenreagh to Dorrigo and Moree to name of a few These locomotives also did main line duties.
3016 was withdrawn in February 1972 and was retained in November 1974 for the Rotary Club of Parramatta, but was sold on to ARHS ACT Division in January 1979. The locomotive was restored to operational condition in 1989. It kept operating train for the Division untill January 1999, for repair work. The locomotive has since gone to NSW Rail Transport Museum, at Thirlmere in Southern NSW for riveting of the boiler and smokebox as well as commercial work and reassembly of this lovely old locomotive and will return to operating condition during 2006. Thank you.

I have photographed close to a dozen plate maps of acquired property of above railroad. I have traced parts of the track by foot and the rest by maps up to the Franklin Cty, MS. line. My coverage is in Adams Cty. I am developing a slide program on the line.
|Steel Company of Wales 0-6-0ST No. 401 'Thomas Burt'||Posted by: Steve Frost on 2006-02-12 11:24:07.65|
This is an interesting example of the last word in UK industrial steam, although not the last to be built by a long way. It featured improvements over earlier types, aimed at making maintenance easier, like outside cylinders and valve gear, roller bearings throughout (including the valve gear, coupling rods, big ends, etc) and a rocking grate to make ash disposal easier, too. Compare it with the Hunslet 18 inch 'Austerity' types that are much more numerous and of later build in some cases to see the difference.

|Astroworld 4-4-0 No. 68||Posted by: Tod Peddie on 2006-02-08 14:02:24.88|
This engine is now in Georgetown, CA at Brook Rather's place and is being restored. It was #2 on the 610 Limited at Astroworld. I was also on the crew in the late 70's when we had a full operation and ran both trains just about every Saturday. The were deisel fired and pretty reliable with the exception of the Injectors.
Her sister engine was sold in January to the folks at Santa Margarita Ranch who operate the San Juis Obispo Railroad Museum. Looks like she'll be in good hands.
Here's a pic of #2 and her crew in 1979. David Anderson, below is also there.
