DP13 ‘Gatsby Flyer’ Update

Posted on Posted in Special Events


DownsSteam is proud to announce the successful completion of a major milestone in the restoration of our ex. TGR railmotor DP13, 'The Gatsby Flyer'. Over the last two weeks, the volunteer team have completed numerous tests, culminating today in the first movement under its own power. This has been a major project for DownsSteam, from when it first arrived in Toowoomba in mid 2014. The photos attached show the stark contrast between the extreme extent of fire damage and the almost fully restored railmotor. We are pleased to announce that the railmotor will be proudly on display at Drayton Station for Australia Day 2018.
