I suppose it really comes down to a persons personal definition of Light Railways.
To me, this shot could not easily be bettered for describing a light railway. Railways don't come much lighter than this.
It is interesting to hear comments about the subject used. One would be hard pressed finding a recent back issue without OS content (look at the current cover) in it and, as I have had people tell me in the past, the Fiji sugar industry has long been tied into Australia in one way or another.
However if it be a big hassle I shall set about changing it ASAP.

Thanks for the photo. I think the photo is a great shot, but a bit too
agricultural. It is not capturing the essence of Light Railways.
But it is making us sit up and think!
"That's a railway? !"
And indeed it is.
The Germans still use the term Feldbahn - Field Railway, derived from muddy
battlefield and turnip railways.
Think Decauville too - portable track panels and horses, later tiny steam
