Perry to Steam Again

March 14, 2020

Wonderful news is that on Friday 13th of March 2020 is that our Perry locomotive Boiler has taken on the next journey and transported to Eagle Tec at Lithgow NSW for major works to begin. Our Team, lead by our Chair Carolyn was successful in obtaining the Transport Heritage Grant for Perry’s Boiler Works. The ILRMS has engaged the services if Chris Eagles at Eagle Tech and his team to do this task a head. Thanks again go to Our Chair Carolyn and Our Chief Boiler Maintenance Leader Trevor for the hard work for the project ahead. Perry will always be special part of the ILRMS as its future rebuild will be memory of the Late Brian Holmes esteemed member Number 6 who was in charge of the operation of Perry at Albion Park.
