The only remaining locomotive from the class, 241 A 65 was fully restored in the 1990s at the Meiningen Steam Locomotive Works in Germany.
Bockholt produced this model in 1982 in two variations. An SNCF livery version and a Deutsche Reichsbahn 08 001 edition (modelled on a SNCF 241 that was used by Germany during the Second World War). Both variations are in the collection.
The T-House model rail collection is a collection of national and international significance due to the size, quality and scope of the collection.
The collection, assembled over 30 years from the 1970s to the 1990s, holds 10 000+ models of locomotives, carriages and wagons. The collection is in excellent – often mint – condition. The models were collected by Mr Marsden Williams, who was born, raised and spent his life in the Wollongong area. Mr Williams was a business man who was renowned for philanthropy, he was an intensely private man, who nevertheless was well connected across the Australian business world. His 40 year fascination for model railways reflected his own interest in precision engineering, and his financial success allowed him to pursue his interest to a remarkable extent.
