520 in the Adelaide Hills

The sole workable survivor awaits restoration by Steamranger at its Mt. Barker depot.  It’s number 520, first of the 520 class of streamlined, South Australian designed and built, large steam passenger loco’s.  Designed as a fast engine capable of running on light tracks, 520 and I were born on the same day in 1943 when WWII prevented the importing of overseas equipment.

Framed size about 60cms x 77cms.

Intended as a donation to Steamranger, for fundraising.
