BURRA


John Browning
 

British narrow gauge historian Mark Smithers recently raised a question on a blog entry. It concerns the 2ft. gauge Hawthorn Leslie 0-4-0ST BURRA of 1923 now at the Illawarra Light Railway in NSW, previously at Corrimal Colliery. This locomotive now has a wide firebox and cast strengtheners on the rear parts of the frames. I believe it received a new boiler from Clyde in 1946. As built did it have a narrow firebox?
