Our Engine Cleaners assist with the daily maintenance of our majestic Locomotives – cleaning and lubricating each mechanism, and polishing all the brass to ensure the Puffing Billy ride is smooth and enjoyable.
Each day our Engines require some tender loving care and preparation for the day ahead.
Our Engine Cleaners assist with the preparation of the locomotives by splitting wood for the next days light-up, cleaning the locomotives down prior to departure, and assisting the drivers and firemen with provisioning of supplies. They remove the ash from the ash pit, clean the loco preparation pit in the Locomotive Running Shed and polish all the brass to ensure the Locomotives look their best.
The Engine Cleaner role is the first step in the pathway to become a Steam Locomotive Driver for Puffing Billy Railway. If you think this is the role for you, please contact our Volunteer Services Team for more information about this volunteering opportunity on 03 9757 0715.
