Preparing 4468 For The Big Move to Canberra

Having acquired 4468, the next step was to plan for the engine's delivery.

During its period of storage, it was noted that a number of key parts of the engine had been removed and a small group of the locomotive branch headed up to the Lithgow Locomotive Depot on 4 & 5 November 2009 to reinstate the missing items (sourced from the ARHS parts store in Canberra).

Here we see some general pictures of locomotive 4468 parked alongside sister unit 4483 at Lithgow, whilst fitters reinstate bits brought up from Canberra.
