Re: Portable Track Research Update



can we swap over? I can offer you -15°C here in Germany...

By the way, the most important supplier for tracks, also portable
tracks, portable turnouts (Kletterweichen) in Java, Indonesia, during
the dutch colonial times was Orenstein&Koppel (O&K), followed by
Ducroo&Brauns and Werkspoor. Also Decauville was a part of the business.
Their name can be found often in old dutch javanese maps beside the
permanent plantation railway tracks.

Thanks to everyone who provided responses to my recent request for
information on late 18th and early 19th century users of portable track.
I'm still looking for specifics... especially which manufacturer
supplied which mill, etc.... but am getting closer.

Best wishes,
