A view of the oncoming Steam Locomotive 2705 as it pulls the Thirlmere to Buxton tourist train through the crossing at Bargo River Road.
2705 is now the regular locomotive on the Thirlmere-Buxton tourist trains operating as part of Trainworks, the New South Wales Railway Museum at Thirlmere, on the South Western outskirts of Sydney, Australia.
Built by Hunslet in 1913, Loco 2705 is the last survivor of the Z-27 class moguls, which were originally purchased by the Department of Public Works for construction duties. The class was rebuilt by the NSWGR with Z-25 class boilers. 2705 was displayed as a static exhibit at the NSWRTM Thirlmere until restored to operation in the mid-1990’s.
