H-6 Perth Tasmania

H-6 is a 4-8-2 locomotive, which was built by Vulcan Foundry in England in 1951.
It served with the Tasmanian Government Railways until being withdrawn in 1968.
H-6 is now plinthed without it's tender in the Lions Park in Perth Tasmania.

Also in the same park are a couple more of these great carvings, like the ones we spotted in Legerwood Tasmania. These ones are of railway workers and were made by the same artist (Eddy Freeman).
