I have no interest in trains so didn't go but my husband did and loved it and insisted I put in this report so below are his thoughts about the place. This fine example of British locomotive manufacture was designed to be added to a goods train to get it safely up or down the Rimutaka incline using a 3rd centre rail for traction and braking. The engine has been meticulously restored and workings demonstrated by raising the locomotive slightly off the track and using an electric motor to operate the running gear. This allows the complex valve and timing gear to be observed in action. Documentation and photos at the exhibition are prolific and the audio visual presentation excellent.
