Re: Beaudesert asset sale to Fairymead Sugar Coy, Bundaberg Sept 1st 1944 /Aramac Tramway.

Here are a couple of photos of the Beaudesert Tramway Fairmont, from the Keith McDonald collection.

It was new in early 1928. See http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article216863131

 

Beaudesert earlier had a more elaborate rail motor built in Brisbane.

Its delivery run from Woolloongabba was on 20 October 1914. See http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article217061014

It does not seem to have been very successful.

 

I believe that Aramac had an previous Fairmont, supplied in 1935, and before that a locally-produced unit, in 1918.

Best wishes
