The cab front, side and back of 1898 Baldwin steam locomotive Wb 299 was on display at RailEx over the weekend of 19-20 November 2016. The display was prominent among the variety of exhibits in the Walter Nash Centre, in the middle of the large sports stadium.
The cab was popular with young and old, as visitors were welcome to try out the driver's seat and work the interactive display of lights, gauges and other artefacts.
New components for the display had been fabricated in the three months leading up to RailEx, as previously published in the article: "Cab work continues for steam loco Wb 299" published in September 2016. A set of CAD drawings have been prepared, referencing original Baldwin plans and measurements taken from photographs and original parts from the locomotive.
Following are a series of photographs showing work on the cab back and assembly of the display at RailEx.
