Good morning, as most of you know it is going to be a big month for the DEB Set. Next week the train will be moved to get access to the pit on site to make inspectons easier, and by the end of the week we will see the team from Lithgow Railway Workshop get to the Hunter Valley and do the final engineering checks for the transfer movement out.
From here we finish our applications for a TOC waiver with the ARTC, Sydney Trains and John Holland then arranging a date and time for LVR’s 47 Class locomotives to come and take the set for the journey to the Central West.
Once the set is in the Central West we can begin basic bodywork repairs (that i am going to Rothbury today to photograph).
Don’t forget we have a raffle ending tomorrow, small one to build up the war chest for the Inspection and Transfer of the set. Prizes are a DEB set hat and a pen (7).
We have raised $3500 in the last week alone, the project is very greatful to those who have contributed financially and with time.
Thanks again, tickets can be purchased off this site.
