World's first railway, operating with steam locomotives, opens in England.
The surviving hydraulic system at Eveleigh is installed, a year before the workshops open, making it the oldest system of its kind in Australia.
Eveleigh expands to meet increasing demand with new foundry and boiler shop extensions and Large Erecting Shop completed.
Four M class boilers are installed in Boiler House Annexe Bay 3.
Four identical C36 class locomotive boilers are installed and adapted as stationary boilers in the Boiler House Annexe Bay 3. These remain in-situ today.
From 1924 to 1927 ten boilers of the C36 class are built at Eveleigh.
Steam locomotion is abandoned.
The two Davy Press boilers are removed and four stationary boilers in the Boiler House are converted to run on oil (and later on natural gas).
On the night of the 2 July 2009, the Powerhouse Museum's restored Steam Locomotive 3265 embarks on a trial run.
