It's not often that the railway acquires a locomotive, however we are fortunate to have taken ownership of steam locomotive D3 619,
previously located at Bendigo. The locomotive was recently moved the short distance to Maldon via road Transport along with Louvre van VZVA 247 which had been also stored at Bendigo.
It is hoped that in the long term we can restore one D3 class locomotive from the two that we now have at the VGR.
The photos below are some action shots taken by Rob Gibb on the 5th January 2012 while the D3 and van were arriving, being unloaded and shunted around Maldon Yard.
