SteamRanger Heritage Railway is pleased to announce that after several years of negotiations, operational broad gauge locomotive 844, will join our fleet, following its donation by OneRail Australia (formerly Genesee & Wyoming Australia).
Locomotive 844 was built by AE Goodwin and Co, and their Granville, NSW workshops, and entered service with the South Australian Railways on the 25th October 1962, servicing on both broad and standard gauge’s, before being placed into storage at Dry Creek, following the cessation of stone train operations between Penrice and Osborne.
Locomotive 844 will join sister unit 845, which is currently under restoration at SteamRanger’s Mount Barker Depot, in providing a strategic backup to our fleet of operational steam locomotives.
We thank OneRail Australia for their generous support.
