Mornington Railway

The Mornington Railway is benefiting greatly through the partnership between Tourist & Heritage Railways in Victoria for the cascade of materials from Level Crossing Removal Project. This is a great example of reuse and recycling to achieve a good outcome for the community.

Level Crossing Removal Project
Ever wondered what happens to old rail infrastructure once it's upgraded?

We recently donated 5,000 old sleepers and 6km of track from the Cheltenham and Mentone level crossing removal projects to the Victorian Goldfields Railway group 👍

"We'll get another 100 years out of it in this environment!"🗣 - Steve Strangward, President of VGR.

See how this rail recycling program is keeping heritage steam trains on track in regional Victoria 📺

Oh I didn't know that. Makes sense and good idea though they may as well be used

Good news!

Our annual track certification inspection was completed yesterday. Everything is looking good, ready to restart our train running when the appropriate clearances are received.

Next step for us is to finalise our COVID Operating Plan so we have all the appropriate social distancing and safety precautions in place to ensure the safety of our customers and volunteers.

We look forward to welcoming everyone back in the coming month or so (announcement expected soon).

Today we popped in to INVER Engineering to see the progress with K163’s wheelsets. The driving wheelset was setup in the horizontal borer and machining of the crankpins underway.

As stated in an earlier update, this work is taking place to correct for wear on the crankpin journals. The critical aspect of this job is to keep the crankpins apart by precisely 90 degrees so the bearings run smoothly on both sides of the engine once reassembled. This requirement is met through the setup of the wheelsets and use of the Digital Read Out (DRO) on the machine.

The surface finish on the completed crank pin is excellent, as can be seen in the picture.

The wheelsets should be returned to Newport within the next couple of weeks.

A huge thanks to the skilled team at INVER Engineering who are excellent to deal with and very professional.

Work on the axleboxes and motion gear bearings is progressing in parallel. (An update on these jobs to follow in the next post).

As always any support towards our project would be greatly appreciated. Our railway is currently not running due to the COVID-19 restrictions, thus income is nil which is severely impacting our not for profit organisation.

With the support of the general public through donations, we are hoping to complete K163’s overhaul and have her running again for everyone to enjoy as soon as restrictions are lifted. Remember donations of $500 entitle the donor to be amongst the first to drive K163 when she is back at Mornington!

Until next time, stay safe.

Remember Jack Thompson Engineering has the same capacity and bigger. JTE have a great name over the last 40 years for this exact workmanship

I can never forget me driving K163 last year, waiting for my next chance.

How far out of round were they?

Jim Savage this could be a way of fixing Bertha's oval crank pin

Lorna dad might be interested to read this! Xx
