Re: White Island Volcano New Zealand
Looking at 'White Island' on Wikipedia there are currently two photos, one of corroded gearing & what MIGHT be the body of a truck - also links to a mention of 'trucks' being used for sulphur extraction.

There were definitely tramways used there (for sulphur extraction) and there are remains. But any article wasn't in
Light Railways. There was an article in the NZ Railway Observer No.338 for Aug/Sept 2016 "Industrial tramways of White Island" by Bill Prebble.
maybe there was an earlier one? To quote Wayne Duncan's Flickr page:
