Had a look over her in Burnie,Tasmania in 1962.Napier Deltic main engines and Rolls Royce generators.She carried a spare Deltic in the car deck hung up over the hatch into the engine room.The Commonwealth Engineering Works in Melbourne had I believe about a dozen Deltics undergoing repairs and modifications just to keep her going.The record for engine failure was about an hour and a half.
