The Return of C17, No. 45 (BOOK)




The Return of C17, No. 45 (BOOK)



This hard cover, 120 page book documents the restoration of C17 locomotive No.45 built by Evans Anderson Phelan in Brisbane in 1923.

This loco stood in Tozer Park in Gympie until 1982 when the Gympie Apex Club arranged for it to be moved to the Gympie Historical Society Museum where it was restored to steam in 1992. 

When the Mary Valley Heritage Railway commenced operation in 1996, No 45 was placed on loan to the MVHR and transferred to their workshop where restoration to full running order was completed and No. 45 became the original Valley Rattler, hauling the first train on 23rd May 1998.
