If you have ever had a chance to walk through the museum over the past year, you would notice there was a small poster hanging up that had a list of items required to finish the construction of the museum. Next to each item was a dollar amount associated with it. Although a number of grants had been obtained for such things as lighting improvements, etc., additional funding was still required to make the dream a reality. Well as of this week, it's official... 

Rescued - 30 Tons In One Haul

We'd like to share this newspaper article that was sent to us by Ed Eminson.  

 
FROM THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD THURSDAY 24TH NOVEMBER 1927
 
In a predicament complete…..8½ tons on his 5 ton lorry, sunk almost to differential in soft earth, front axle resting on ground …this driver scarce could have been more hopelessly placed on the 1 in 4 grade between Leura and Katoomba. (100 miles west of Sydney)
 
A steam roller failed to help. Then another heavy lorry and the roller combined were unsuccessful.
 
Finally, a Brockway 4 tonner carrying 7½ tons, effected unaided rescue on first attempt. In reverse, at the lowest of it’s nine speeds, it lifted out the lorry with ease – actually ploughing a foot deep furrow for a space of 20 feet with the latter’s near side, locked front wheel. 

A total pull of 30 tons agreed the transport men standing by. (reliable witnesses confirm the report)

This Brockway is owned by Mr. Wright of Enmore. Recognised by regular drivers as the most powerful truck on the mountain run, it covered a distance of 30,000 miles in the first nine months – the only replacement expenses amounting to 5/- repairs to 10/-. It habitually carries 7 ton loads.
