Workshop

Illawarra Light Railway Museum Society, Albion Park, NSW

The derelict remains of Munro's Hampton Tramway Shay No.1 & No.2 were donated to the ILRMS in 1974.   These were reassembled to form a static display of locomotive No.2 which could be seen at the ILRMS in the 1978-79 period.  No.2 was then dismantled as the first step on a lengthy restoration to operation; when complete it will be known as No.1 (Lima 906) with some minor parts from No.2 (Lima 2097).
