This steam engine was moved to a highway location
in Swifts Creek. It remains a part of our collection.
The plan has been in train for about 4 years as
part of the streetscaping project at Swifts Creek.
Picked up with a sling around each wheel hub.
Positioned and secured
Its off to Swifts Creek
New home is outside the Hall and toilets.
Lifted and carry truck driven away
Moved into position
Turn those front wheels to just the right angle
Bolt a chuck or two in place
and there you have it,
