Victorian Goldfields Railway

J 541

Wednesday 11th April saw the inaugural use of our loading/unloading ramp at Maldon as J 541 was transferred onto a low loader truck and transferred by road to Newport Workshops, Melbourne to receive some much need Tender Loving Care after its full on stint at the VGR. The work undertaken at Newport will include turning of the wheels and repairs to its most recent failure. It will eventually continue on from Newport to its new home on the Yarra Valley Railway at Healsville.

The Pictures below, courtesy of Matthew Davis, show 541's journey around Maldon Yard behind F 212 before being pushed onto the low loader and departure to Melbourne.
