New Arrival to WCR

Published by Admin at 5:25 PM under Steam Locomotives

Some of you may know Tony Howker. Ex Westinghouse Rail in the UK, he was THE Signalling guru at The Great Cockrow Railway near London. Tony has since retired to Melbourne and his grandson James lives here in New Zealand and has become a regular at the Winter Creek in the last year.

Tony is moving one of his locomotives - Britannia -  to the Winter Creek for James to learn how to care for and drive. We also hope to see Tony regularly here with his Grandson enjoying Steamups together.

Here is a photo of Britannia with Tony's other loco a Black Five which I  had the pleasure of driving last year. Photo was taken at the main station, Cambelltown Miniature Railway, Melbourne where Tony is a regular driver.
