And yep, it's already dirty
Wednesday was Christmas Day for Park Manager Ray, who found an eight-ton Caterpillar Excavator under his tree, ready for use.
Hastings Deering has been a QMP sponsor for about four years now, and this machine will be very handy at the park, in a number of roles.
"There will be many applications in the park where we'll find this machine more than suitable," said Ray, "such as recovering soil, helping with the builds on the track, putting in pipes and helping to dam-build.
"We've had a long-standing relationship of support with Hastings Deering, and we thank them very much for their valuable and ongoing support."
