Using the link John provided suggests horse whim loading arrangement were reasonably common for rail operations. Seems they could be used for any load such as cane or wood or bags of coal etc.

Thanks John!!

I have now googled horse whim so I have just learnt what that is. The horse one was 1922 yet the 1924 advertisement stated hand and motor derricks provided so maybe it could depend on who was writing the tender document.

The photo here http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article163129940 shows that horse derricks were powered by a whim arrangement.
