C16 106 – “Pride of Toowoomba”
"Project 106" - Restoration of Steam Loco No. 106
Steam Loco No. 106 "The "Pride of Toowoomba" is a significant and important part of Toowoomba’s rich railway history. Downs Steam and its talented team of volunteers are committed to restoring this locomotive to operational order. Loco 106’s restoration is well underway, with the locomotive completely disassembled, the individual parts can be overhauled and the loco slowly reassembled. Although, due to the age of the loco many parts will need to be replaced or re-manufactured by specialist engineering firms. It is assessed that we will need an extra $150,000 within the next three years to be able to fully complete the restoration. Project 106 needs your help!
