Peckett

A view of the Puffing Billy museum at Menzies Creek. The loco on the right is a Peckett 0-4-0ST ex-Melbourne gasworks. I believe it's now been restored to working order. I don't know anything about the engine on the left.

The loco on the left is a 2ft gauge Hudswell Clark that operated at the Macknade sugar mill in Queensland. It is currently operational (4/2009).
The 2ft 6in gauge Peckett was restored to service around 1980 for a total cost of $1500!, by a very resourceful museum group. It is used frequently for \'specials\' but is most often seen giving enjoyment to hundreds of children when wearing \'Thomas\' pyjamas.
Behind the Peckett is Shay No 14 from the Alishan Railway in Taiwan.
