Locomotive in Mitchell Memorial Park

Maranoa Regional Council has received a proposal from the Queensland Pioneer Steam Railway Co-operative Ltd (QPSRC) seeking to relocate the locomotive currently situated in the Mitchell Memorial Park.

The locomotive is the only restorable type in its class and the group would like to restore it to working order for use on the Ipswich Heritage Railway line.

Councillors have invited the local community to meet with group representatives to discuss their proposal to exchange the locomotive for other rolling stock i.e. sleeping or freight car which, once restored, could generate alternative tourism opportunities in the town of Mitchell.

Council held a community consultation session on Tuesday, 30 October 2018. If you missed the session, you can still view the presentation and provide your feedback.

The feedback period closes Tuesday, 13 November 2018.
