ABOUT 'THE GARRATT'

Transport Heritage NSW recently welcomed Australia’s largest operating steam locomotive, Beyer-Garratt 6029, into its operating fleet, following its acquisition by the NSW Government.

'The Garratt' entered service in 1954 and was a reliable work horse of the NSW Government Railways, travelling more than one million kilometres before it was removed from regular service in 1972.

The locomotive is an outstanding example of rail engineering of yesteryear and illustrates the fabulous work of THNSW volunteers and previous owners over the years to maintain it as a reliable, working asset.
