The newly restored New South Wales Government Railways Garratt 6029 came to Wagga Wagga on the long weekend. The 60 class Garratt's are the largest Garratt's built and they were built by Beyer Peacock in the UK and the first one arrived in 1952. They lasted until the end of steam in 1973. I am to young to have been able to see them working so when 6029 came to our part of the world  the family and I took the opportunity to both ride & chase it.

It was a fun day and we all enjoyed the impressive display of power.
