Our feet got wet -- again -- but we are rebuilding... Bundaberg flood 2013

In late December 2010 Queensland's worst flooding in decades resulted in some damage to the railway and it's infrastructure.

Most of that damage had been repaired when Bundaberg was hit with even worse flooding late January 2013, resulting in much more significant damage to the railway and its supporting infrastructure.

However, the Society is resolved to rebuild and looks forward to your support now and in the future. Contact the Society direct if you'd like to assist.

Ian Bryant & Graeme Timson blowing down Invicta's boiler during the accumulation test

July 2013 update: a major success with 'INVICTA' passing the accumulation test with the safeties now set at a working pressure of 130psi. Injectors were tested and appear to be working OK. The locomotive had a trial run around non-restricted areas in the gardens, and the whistle appeared to have an effect on the fruit bat population (time will tell whether they move on). The photo above shows Ian Bryant & Graeme Timson blowing down Invicta's boiler during the accumulation test.
