The LRRSA ran a highly successful mini-tour on Monday December 20, to
the Dutton Bay Tramway. The tramway will be running its last train on
December 28, and a special train was supplied to provide the members
present with a tour of the line. The Dutton Bay is a prime candidate
for LRRSA interest, being a private, industrial, narrow gauge railway,
although the gauge of 9mm might be considered a little too narrow for
Members present were Frank Stamford, Mike McCarthy, Grant McAdam and
John Dennis, with three guests along for the ride.
There's a couple of photos of this day, plus another "farewell" tour
run a month earlier, on this Railpage thread:
Yes I was a guest driver on the occasion, working under expert guidance.
It is an amazingly well set up model railway worked to timetable with
multiple operators and with a highly credible story and scenic
background behind it.
