Steam Locomotive "Donald"

Posted by Darrin Wilkinson on August 9, 2015 at 2:40 AM

We are happy to announce that progress is being made on our Steam Locomotive.  




The Steam Team are making rapid progress on the steam loco project. Key members are John Stitchbury, Arthur Beaman, Gary Coburn, and Scott McIntyre.


Photo above  shows the boiler which has spent a few weeks in Nelson where it was inspected, and tested up to 300psi pressure. It got a very good report. Transport to and from Nelson was courtesy of the Renwick Lions Club.



Photo above shows the loco frame over the pit. Many detailed jobs are being done here by our very skilled team.
