Steam Crane E 120
E120 Steam Crane ex-East Town Railway Workshops here in Wanganui. Built in 1904. Received in 1994? (Rail Heritage Trust Wagon).
Members are slowly restoring the crane back to operation. All the running gear has now been freed up, cleaned and painted. The crane boom is currently getting its old paint atken off as well. During the 2014 Wanganui Vintage weekend we had the crane ticking over on steam provided from a visiting traction engine. The boiler will need to come out at some stage for some hopefully miner work repacing a few rivits.
If anyone has early photos of our locos, crane, carriages, wagons and buildings etc (or any Wanganui Rail history) during their working careers we would love to see them.
