The Engine Driver’s Cab of Puffing Billy Locomotive 14A standing at the station at Lakeside in the Dandenong Ranges, near Melbourne, Victoria.
Built in 1914 and painted Canadian Pacific red & dark brown, this locomotive was issued to the Colac to Crowes line and saw service on all four lines, but mostly on the Colac to Crowes line. It was withdrawn from service in 1962 at Colac and sent to Newport Workshops for storage where it remained, except for a brief time at Bendigo North Work-shops in 1963. After overhaul, it was brought to Belgrave in 1965 where it has seen almost continuous service since. The livery has now given way to 14A’s designated livery of all-over black. Its physical configuration matches the late 1940s era with the extended bunker, guard irons, etc.
The interior of the engine driver’s cab is a little more colourful.
