Lost Locomotive around Noojee

dave.malady
 

G'day all,
Just wondering if anyone knows anything about a supposed
narrow gauge locomotive lying in the bush around Noojee(Vic). Has been
a bit of renewed interest around the traps in finding it so I hear.
Regards, Dave.

Peter/Stephen,

I had a bit of a snoop, and there is some pipe work adjacent to the
boiler. However it is a building site so I wasn't able to glean a lot
of info.

I found a picture of a similar Robison Boiler at:

The steam driven water pumps are still in thier original location. The
people that are rebuilding the dry dock for polly wood side would like
to put the pumps back into operation and run them on compressed air, but
the heritage people are hesitant about allowing this to happen.

Hi Rod,I believe this was the boiler that provided steam to the pumps
that pumpedthe Duke & Orr dock dry once a ship was inside. I believe the
pumps havebeen preserved separately - perhaps at the Melbourne Steam
Traction EngineClub at Scoresby? It's a pity they weren't able to be
kept together. Oftenthe first reaction to a threat to an installation is
to remove whateverinterests the rescuer most. The better option is to
try and keep aninstallation intact in situ if at all possible. I'm not
aware of thecircumstances of the removal of the pumps so this is not
intended to be acriticism, just an observation.Cheers,PeterE.Peter

Boiler - Robison Bros. [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]

Hi all,

Not Light Rail but is Steam

Down opposite the old berth that Polly Woodside (sailing vessel) was
docked in, the additions to the Melbourne Convention centre have placed
a purpose built shelter over a bricked-in boiler.

The boiler details are:
Robison Bros. Melbourne
1.03.1904
Tested to 240 lbs sq in

Does anyone know anything about this old thing?

Re: Peckett locomotive "Sir John Grice" - West Melbourne Gasworks

Dear Frank,

The photograph you show, taken c1930 is the one I have, but my copy is an old print which appears to be taken off the original negative, so is sharp and the name on the plate can be read.

Whether or not the present aluminium plate is cast or etched is hard to tell from photos. What is clear is that it is the opposite of the original where the name was etched or recessed, while on the present one it is the background that is recessed or etched (hence the edge is raised). More importantly, it bears no relationship whatsoever to the original design.

If I was in Melbourne, I'd happily prepare a drawing for the new plates!

Best wishes,

Richard

Thanks Richard.

I do not think the current nameplate is cast. It appears to be
aluminium, possibly etched aluminium.

It is certainly different to the plate you describe.

In the photos section of this Yahoo Group I have added three photos in
the Album "Frank's photos":

http://groups. yahoo.com/ group/LRRSA/ photos/album/ 406528701/ pic/list

One shows the loco near Fielder in 2007. The second is a close-up of
the nameplate currently fitted to the loco ( - this picture is
actually an enlargement taken from the first picture). The third shows
the loco working at West Melbourne Gasworks, as published in "Light
Railways" No.90. The nameplate in this is very indistinct.

I have a photo of 'SIR JOHN GRICE' in use at the gasworks, sent to

The present plate is cast, with raised letters and edge. The name
is in capitals but the letters 'IR' of 'SIR' are about half the height
of the other letters.

The original plate appears to be different in these respects:

* Much thinner and probably made from thick sheet of brass.
* Name written in capitals thus' SIRJOHN GRICE'... the letters S, J
and G being about half an inch taller than the remainder. Bottom of
all letters on same level. The letters are simple, non-serrif, quite
thin lines and not as compressed as on the present plate.
* The letters are darker than the plate, so presumably etched or
cut into the brass and painted black (or similar) (as was the name
'JOHN BENN' in the well-known photo of that loco (Hainault 861/1886).

* There is no raised edge to the plate (obviously, as it was a flat
sheet). Rather there is an etched perimeter line, dark coloured, set
about half an inch in from the edge of the plate.
* The four fixing bolts (dome headed) are at the extreme corners of
the plate.I trust that this is of some help.

"Light Railways" No.90 had a photograph of Peckett 0-4-0ST loco "Sir
John Grice" (B/No.1711 of 1926) in service at the West Melbourne
Gasworks. That photo is not very distinct in the area where the
nameplate should be, but it appears the nameplate was either very
flat, or it has dropped off!

I am wondering if anyone knows of any other photos of the loco in
service at the gasworks, showing the nameplate.

The loco is now owned by the Puffing Billy Railway and is in need of a
repaint. It is proposed to paint it as it was when delivered from the
Peckett Company, and the question has been raised as to whether the
nameplate currently fitted is similar to that originally fitted.

Re: NSW Boiler Records : How and Where?

Peter Evans
 

When I could not find the Victorian boiler records under any "mainsteam"
industrial department archives, I was advised by an archivist at the
Victorian Public Records office to write a history of the boiler inspection
legislation. I did so, found out that the records I wanted were under the
oversight of the Mines Department and, "bingo", there they were. I'm sure
the Mitchell library has copies of the NSW statutes and an index to them, so
an afternoon's work should suffice to find out under which department the
responsibility for boiler examinations in NSW resided. The regulations
promulgated under the boiler inspection act will tell you what sort of
original records were generated. Armed with that information, you can go to
your archivist at Public Records NSW and ask to see the list of record
series for that department.



As Richard suggests, you may be looking in vain - industrial history
generally sits poorly with archivists driven by government imperatives to
"service" customers who mainly consist of those damned genealogists who
always sit in pairs and never shut up . Never mind the fact that industrial
history and heritage affected more lives than all the grand houses combined.
The Victorian archives authorized he destruction of all the correspondence
files associated with industrial boilers as late as the early 1980s leaving
only the original registrations 1906-1935 extant. Similarly, the mining
boiler records are limited to first registrations from 1927 to 1945.

It mentions that this locomotive was subsequently sold to the Bootless

Excuse my ignorance aficionados, but where was this and what did it do?

I'm pretty sure that all the NSW boiler records were destroyed by an archivist who considered that they were of no interest. Others will doubtless confirm this (or otherwise).
