C16 106 – “Pride of Toowoomba”
"Project 106" - Restoration of Steam Loco No. 106
No. 106 was written off the books on 28th May 1964, having clocked up 1,134,533 miles (1.8 million km)! Now back in her hometown & re-named the "Pride of Toowoomba", DownsSteam's talented team of volunteers are committed to restoring No. 106 to operational order. Once complete in late 2021, loco 106 will be able to once again impart the pleasure of roaming the Darling Downs and the Granite Belt behind a majestic steam locomotive proudly built & restored in Toowoomba!
