Re: Kiama tramway


I have a note that this loco was in use at Kiama ex Avon Dam in1938 and derelict there in 1956.  I also have a note that there was a standard gauge Gibson Battle loco of 1927, used on the quarry floor, derelict by 1936 and also extant in 1956.

I do not now know the source of this information, so advise that it be treated with a degree of caution, particularly the standard gauge loco and the dates associated with it.  Corroboration or otherwise welcomed.

Afternoon all

Been visiting the local museum in Kiama today and have a query.

It had a list of locomotives that worked on the tramway and the time they were there. A interesting one was as follows: 1927, Gibson Battle, petrol electric Ex Avon Dam, built in April 1921.

I thought I knew a lot about the tramway but this a new one for me. Does anyone have any information on this loco. Did it actual work on the tramway.

Any information would be appreciated.
