THE 3801 PROJECT

Locomotive 3801 was built in 1943 by Clyde Engineering and has been in preservation since its retirement from the NSW Railways in 1962.

 

The locomotive was withdrawn from heritage service in 2007, as it required major boiler repairs. You can read more about the project and the latest updates below.
