Dreamworld's historic 'Baldwin' steam train returns to service

6 posts in this topic

I think the author has gotten a few things confused here - "Baldwin" and "Perry" have been interchanged halfway through - the first part says the Perry was gifted to the ANGRMS and the Baldwin was on track yesterday, but the second part says work has gone into the Perry, and the photo caption says it was the Baldwin now at Woodford...

Also noticed this error 


Both were vintage trains each with about a century of history, and had faithfully serviced Dreamworld guests for three decades.

The way I read it, it is saying that each engine has about a century of history. The Baldwin is nearing a century (built in 1917 for service in WW1) but the Perry was only built in 1951. 

Thanks for writing the article Richard, its fantastic to see this event and the engine itself receive the recognition it deserves.

Thanks for the clarification and expertise @T-bone; I fixed the article accordingly. Trains aren't something I know a huge amount about so I hope I did it justice...

No problems Richar,d happy to help where possible.
