Last EMD Streamliner in the world needs a Turbo Repair

Update posted by Ross Jackson On Jun 14, 2019

14th JUNE 2019 UPDATE - RESTORATION COMMENCED, TURBO ISSUES


Currently the restoration of the exterior of CLP10 is underway at Cootamundra NSW. It is widely known that the Turbocharger is ceased, as a result we will be dismantling it for hopeful repairs, or be faced with replacing the turbo (from the US).

We are undertaking a restoration tour from Sydney - Bathurst and return on July 27th to raise more funds, please see https://www.123tix.com.au/events/4536/the-central-...

We still need every dollar we can to get this restoration completed.

We are extending the fundraising to hopefully cover the costs of Turbo Repairs, or replacement with the new goal set at $100,000.00

We hope a late 2019/early 2020 return to service for CLP10

Thanks Everyone

Streamliners Australia.

I am sure by now you are aware of CLP10 being secured for preservation (huge effort), now we are looking for a further $16,050 to acquire new batteries and lubricants to revive this fantastic beast.

Streamliners Australia has settled the paint and painting facility and are also applying for a THNSW grant for the ICE radio (around $50,000), so this is really the final piece of the puzzle to make CLP10 move under its own power.

In respect of what has already been raised it is a small achievable amount, however needs everyones combined effort to get the word out. Thank you again to everybody who has dug deep so far, even if you have just shared information about the campaign it has been a fantastic effort.

We have been having robust conversation about the future of Streamliners Australia and the potential that a new main line heritage operator in NSW has, we will keep you updated.

Thanks again everyone!

Update 2 - We have been given a challenge. Make another $10,000 in 24 hours and the Balance is funded.

That means CLP 10 Remains in Australia and becomes the first in her class to be preserved.

Please share this message as we are so close to our goal!

Ross, firstly I hope that we are successful in saving this locomotive and thank you for your initiative. I have donated to this cause in the past and am now considering doing so again. Could you make a statement as to what will happen to donations if we are unsuccessful? i.e. will you return donations and how will this be assured? I (and I would think others) will be MUCH more likely to donate a larger amount if I know that I will get my money back if this effort is unsuccessful.

Getting a couple of shots of the Central West Streamliner on Saturday so figure it only fair to contribute to the cause :)

Contribution in lieu of fare for Central West Streamliner, since I’ll be cading instead of travelling. Hope the day runs well!
