In the early fifties I had my railwayman’s annual vacation in Queensland. I visited many sugar mill sites from Hambledon Mill near Cairns [which had Clyde 0-6-0 diesel locos] south to Moreton Central Mill at Nambour. Most mills had steam locos and I recall and photographed ‘MORETON’ [which travelled under the QR main line] and ‘VALDORA’ [used for shunting] at Nambour, also other steam locos were photographed at Pleystowe, Isis, Millaquin and Qunaba sugar Mills. One of these had an 0-4-0 Krauss loco with a large spark arrestor stack like ‘JACK’ from Burrinjuck Dam, also an 0-6-0 loco. Other mills in that area and elsewhere had ‘Bunderberg/Fowler’ steam locos.
A lot of these 35 mm colour transparency images are yet to be scanned when I can afford a good Epson high resolution scanner. Most of my colour film was Kodachrome which retained colours better than others. They have only been viewed occasionally with a 300 watt ‘Aldis’ projector.
