Bring it home
A HISTORIC steam traction engine is poised to finally make its return to Inglewood.
The Cliff and Bunting engine that once powered Jones’ eucalyptus distillery has been conserved and restored by Museums Victoria.
But when it returns to the Loddon hinges on the eucalyptus distillery museum committee’s efforts to have a special annexe built.
Committee spokesman Murray Baud said funds had been raised and the permits obtained from Loddon Shire and Heritage Victoria.
The holdup, he said, was waiting for an available project manager.
Mr Baud said $150,000 had been raised, including grants with spending deadlines, to bring the historic engine back to the distillery on land managed for council by the committee. Council has waived the building permit fee.
