Shop Number 1694 Restoration
October 19, 2004
Out of service for several years at the Puffing Billy Museum, Melbourne, Victoria, AU. S/N 1694 has been moved from Emerald to the shops at Belgrave, for boiler restoration work. S/N 1694 is one of the authors favorite Climax locomotives. She's a classy looking little lady! And of course she has the distinction of carrying the last builders plate of the Climax Manufacturing Company. All photographs on this page courtesy Bill Hanks.
Special thanks to Bill Hanks, for providing the update on S/N 1694 and for the great photos. Bill has promised to keep us updated on the restoration progress. I'm sure the folks at the Puffing Billy Railway could use a little help with this progress.
