This is 14A, one of five NA class locomotives used by the Puffing Billy Railway. This century-old steam train is still running on its original mountain track, from Belgrave to Gembrook in the Dandenong Ranges, Victoria, Australia.
The majority of staff at Puffing Billy Railway are volunteers – including these three guys, who were getting 14A ready for a safety inspection at Gembrook station when this picture was taken.
