Number of Images on this Page = 60
Some stuff that didn't seem appropriate to catalogue elsewhere!
I'm afraid I know very little about these images. They were part of a box of slides I was given by a friend (Dr Selby Markham) some years back, and they came with little addition information. The name of each one has been gleaned from a pencil annotation on each slide. Any reader who has any further information is most welcome to write to me with further details!
Four of these locos were built by Robert Stephenson for the fledgling Sydney Railway Company, which commmenced operations on 29 Mar 1855. They were withdrawn by 1879, but fortunately one was saved and is preserved for the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences at Ultimo (now know as the Powerhouse Museum).
I lived in Canberra for 13 years, and was active in the ACT Division of the Australian Railway Historical Society . Included in this section are a few photos of some of the activities we participated in during that time.
