Re: QR derailments etc 1950s - 1990s


For an interesting time, use search term ‘Innisfail’ and watch all the QR Innisfail tramway entries pop up!  Tramway sold by QR in 1977. Arthur Robinson has mentioned the code eg B53.5984, would most likely refer to the year (1953) and the rest the QR file number. Obvious these are historical files and not mine originally so I would have no interest what you decide to do with them after you download eg share with your researcher mates etc

Subject: [LRRSA] QR derailments etc 1950s - 1990s


I offer a very extensive list of 1950s to 1990s list of QR train derailments etc etc in MS Word format. It includes both QR long closed lines thus on topic for LRRSA as well as many events resulting from interactions with QR and sugar mill tramway traffic.  


An example follows and I am not sure what the ‘3’ and B53.5984 indicate although obviously some QR code system; 24/7/53  7m Woongarra branch 3 B53.5984 Collision and derailment of PB15 537 and a Qunaba Mill cane train.


As far as I am concerned, these railway historical research documents are now available for other researchers.
