Original and after being at Nambour.
Have been in contact with people who worked it, they say it was very light footed and was only used on maintenance work trains.
You can see extra weights that have been added over couplers and sand hoppers.

It has been awhile. I have only been on the track a couple of times in the last year.
Since last showing the loco has been changed from ride-on to ride behind. An electric brake system has been designed using a linear drive, proving quiet workable.
New riding carriage using single bogie/truck design. Arthritis just made the sit-on a bit uncomfortable.

Very interesting loco! I’ve enjoyed reading your thread on this build, and how it has evolved.
