The ex United States Army Transportation Corps. and Queensland Government Railways Baldwin built S118 Class 2-8-2 No. 218A has become the first steam locomotive to bring steam back to the Zig Zag Railway since December 2011 after repairs from bush fire damage. No. 218A is now back in service following completion of a heavy overhaul and rebuild and has been turned out in a Green livery and has been undergoing test runs and will be hauling trains up the Zig Zag Railway again.
