Historic Locomotive


Something to see, for those who like a bit of history

A historic Locomotive, built in Ballarat VIC, and used in the South West of WA

I was unaware of this locomotive, and I only live about 50 Ks from it, so I am putting it out there for others, who may not know about it

Link to story below, and note that Ballaarat, (the name of the Locomotive), was how they spelled that town, in those days

Quite an interesting read. Thanks Tony.
It was interesting to note the "Bush" modifications in the photo's attached to the article and; How many iterations to the main boiler funnel?
