According to the rumour mill, after five years of restoration apparently 6029 completed a steam test of its boiler very recently.
If the rumour mill is true, and I hope it is this time, perhaps it won't be much longer before this fine loco treads the rails under its own power. In anticipation of that eventuality, here's a couple from the vault of the last time a family member saw a Garratt move.
I think the year was 1982 and 6029 was off for an afternoon run.
Here is a shot from the train. Even the cows showed a passing interest.
And here is the old girl, on its return.
So, here's hoping, 107 years after a NSWGR employee invented the Garratt concept, we get to see one run once more!
