Auditor General's report 1915-16; Cane hauled by horse to mill. Unfinished portion of Molendinar section, including terminal facilities at the railway siding, was practically reconstructed for locomotive hauled traffic.
A locomotive ordered for the purpose of substituting steam for horse traction was received and worked satisfactorily.  Thanks to John Browning and David Mewes as well as material from the late George Bond.
 
Cheers

Peter,
 
I know that the mill purchased Hunslet 1199 new in 1915.  Was there an earlier locomotive?
