No.1  Delta

Perry Engineering b/n 7967.50.4 of 1950

 

No. 1 Delta was dismantled for overhaul at the time of my visit to Menzies Creek in October 2002.

 

This 0-6-2T locomotive was built by Perry Engineering Co. Ltd. of Mile End, Adelaide as their Builder's No. 7967.50.4 of 1950.  It was used at Qunaba Mill, Bundaberg where it was known as No.1 "Delta". a

 

Qunaba Mill No.1 is now an exhibit at the Puffing Billy Preservation Society's museum at Menzies Creek.  My visit of October 2002 found No.1 Delta under overhaul, as seen in the above scanned photograph.  b
