Last EMD Streamliner in the world needs new Batteries and Lubricant

Update posted by Ross Jackson On Jul 08, 2018

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.
