Krauss B/N 6611 of 1912

 

 

Photo required

This 0-4-0WT locomotive was constructed by Lokomotivfabrik Krauss & Co in Germany as their builder's number 6611 of 1912.  From 1913 it worked at the Mount Bauple Central Mill Co Ltd and by 1928 the Mt Bauple Co-Op Mill.  It had been abandoned by 1950. a

Krauss 6611 was obtained for preservation by a Sydney enthusiast / collector.  It was based at the Marsden Museum of Historic Engines, Goulburn NSW from June 1972 to 1975.  I believe it moved to the Illawarra Light Railway, Albion Park for a period from 1976.  I believe it now resides at private premises in the Sydney suburb of Gymea where it keeps company with Krauss 2589, Krauss 6927 & Maffei 3677.

Contributions of information or photographs for this locomotive are welcome.
