New Boiler for 3801 to be Brought to Australia

21 November, 2014

Transport Heritage NSW (THNSW) welcomes the Minister for Transport's statement today announcing the new boiler for locomotive 3801 will be brought to Australia.

The return of locomotive 3801's boiler is a significant milestone as it will allow local experts to finalise the work required.

Both the THNSW CEO and technical specialists will continue to collaborate with TfNSW through a steering committee overseeing the boiler project.

With its experienced, skilled and active steam workforce based at its' workshops in Chullora and Thirlmere, THNSW is ready and able to coordinate the final stages of work necessary to get locomotive 3801 back on track.

THNSW shares in the community's interest in 3801 and is determined to see this iconic and much loved locomotive back on track as a vital part of bringing transport heritage in NSW to life.

We now look forward to continuing to provide regular updates as the project progresses to completion.


Listen to the Minister for Transport, Gladys Berejiklian MP, on the Chris Smith Afternoon Show today.
