             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
