The Mornington Railway Preservation Society Inc is embarking on a large project to refurbish a number of key components on our Green K Class Locomotive. The project will be exciting to follow and support, however a massive requirement from key technical volunteers and funding is required to complete these critical repairs.
To support this project we hope to crowdfund $ 25,000 for the purchase of costly plain bearing and axle box material, complete machining of crank pins and turn K163's wheels to the right profile. A number of smaller tasks will also be completed on the K163. These tasks will help our K class continue to run into the future, as K163 is the lifeblood of the Mornington Railway, completion of these maintenance tasks are critical to the ongoing sustainability of the Mornington Railway.
