J & A Brown No.2 was one of two Avonside locomotives acquired by Abermain-Seaham Collieries Ltd for use at Abermain No.2 & 3 Collieries, where they were known as 'Bristol Bombers'. No.2 ended it career in 1969 and was stored at Hexham until purchased for preservation in 1973. This loco was the first preserved in connection with what became the Dorrigo Steam Railway & Museum, and accordingly is featured on the letterhead of the organisation.

J & A Brown No.5 was originally a condensing locomotive used on the Mersey Railway, Liverpool, prior to electrification of this underground railway in 1904. Four were sold to J&A Brown and overhauled in the UK (including removal of condensing gear) prior to shipment to Australia.

Disposal details are not recorded and the loco is rumoured to have been abandoned and drowned under the new dam waters in 1928. No trace of the loco has been found during drought times of low water in the dam, however the likely abandonment area (presumably the loco shed near the dam wall) was in deep water even in these times.

Burrinjuck Dam

Ex-Goondah-Burrinjuck Railway. This loco was sold in 1929 to Fairymead Mill near Bundaberg, becoming their No.7. In the 1970’s it ran at the Museum of Historic Engines, Goulburn under the mistaken identity ‘Jack’. Correctly identified as ‘Archie’ in 2008, the loco can now be seen statically displayed under a weather roof at Burrinjuck Dam.

Lake Macquarie Light Railway,

Toronto, NSW

Ex-Goondah-Burrinjuck Railway. This loco was sold in 1933 to Farleigh Mill, near Mackay, where it was put to work in sugar cane haulage. Farleigh Mill donated the locomotive to the NSWRTM in1966 and it was restored in preparation for display at the 1969 Royal Easter Show, erroneously named ‘Archie’. For 33 years it was plinthed in the museum forecourt at Thirlmere. In 2008 it moved to the Lake Macquarie Light Railway where it has now been restored to operation, during which its true identity ‘Jack’ was discovered.

Ex-Corrimal Colliery. Delivered new to Corrimal Colliery in 1923, Burra operated the 2’ gauge line traversing the rugged escarpment at the top of a haulage incline. After many years of restoration by ILRMS volunteers, Burra returned to steam in December 1994 and is now one of their key operating exhibits.

Wollondilly / PWD 35 is often referred to as ‘The Kiama Fowler’ following its use at the State Metal Quarries, Kiama. It was resident at the Marsden Museum of Historic Engines, Goulburn from 1958 to 1974 and was associated with proposals to establish a tourist railway at Kiama in the 1980’s. My visit to the ILRMS Albion Park in 2015 found Wollondilly / PWD 35 under restoration to operation after several decades of storage.

Crookwell

Ex-Corrimal Colliery. The chassis of Krauss 6927 was retrieved from Corrimal Colliery for preservation by a Sydney enthusiast in 1971 and initially stored at the Marsden Museum of Historic Engines, Goulburn NSW from December 1971 to March 1974. I believe these remains later resided at a private site in Gymea, in company with Krauss 2589, Krauss 6611 & Maffei 3677. More recently these Krauss locomotive remains have moved to a rural property at Woodhouselee, near Crookwell, NSW.
