Bid Mitchell’s C17 Locomotive Farewell
Mitchell residents are invited to say their goodbyes to the C17 Locomotive in Mitchell’s Memorial Park. Part of the Locomotive will depart for the Queensland Pioneer Steam Railway for restoration.
A section of the C17 Locomotive will be detached and transported in the next 1-2 weeks (a removal date has not been confirmed, as the removal is undertaken by volunteers and depends on availability of drivers). The remaining Locomotive parts will be relocated later this year.
Council encourages residents to go and see the Locomotive one last time in the coming days before it leaves to be restored to its former glory.
