What evidence to you have that David Mitchell's firewood tram was 3ft
6in gauge?

Hi All,

Perhaps this group might like to consider light railways with a gauge
greater than 3-ft 6-in? Victorian lines that spring to mind are the
McIvor firewood line (5-ft 3-in), the early horse trams of the Wombat
Forest south of Bendigo (also 5-ft 3-in), and the David Mitchell
firewood tram (3-ft 6-in and, later, standard gauge). In addition,
there were heaps of very traditional "light railways" with a gauge of
3-
ft 6-in, especially in the Otway Forest and east of the Powelltown
line.

Cheers,
