Steam Tug Lyttleton.FZ200

The 104 year old steam tug Lyttelton is just about the only bit of historic Lyttelton intact after the earth quake. But it needs a bit of help to keep going in its second century. The Tug Lyttelton Preservation Society is looking for volunteers to keep the tug steaming. The magic of steam has been with the Port since the 19th century which has seen the Lyttelton village grow, briefly stumble with an earthquake, and now plan for a bright new future. That the steam tug TSST LYTTELTON has survived the passing of the steam era, with the advent of modern diesel powered vessels, is no coincidence. It has survived because she is, has been and always will be, one of Port Lyttelton’s icons. An icon that remains proud and a talisman to show that Lyttelton will survive whatever may come.
