Dreamworld is reportedly in the process of replacing their two steam locomotives with a newer, more energy-efficient diesel locomotive.
The two steam locomotives up for replacement — “Perry” and “Baldwin” — currently run on Australia’s longest privately owned railway, called the Dreamworld Railway.
The steam locomotive “Baldwin” is the oldest of the two, and has been at the park since it opened in 1981. It was previously used during the First World War in France.
The new diesel locomotive is expected to be fully operational by the end of October.
