Light Railways 269
The mailout team did their usual sterling job on Thursday, but the public holiday on Friday meant the magazine couldn't be posted. It was handed over to Australia Post today, and should be hitting your letter boxes sometime this week. Light Railways 269 - October 2019 - is a 48 page bumper issue, and looks like another cracker!
The main article features Wyett's Tramway at Beaconsfield, in Tasmania, and Jim Longworth has done a great job of expanding our knowledge of this interesting system.
Revisiting Wyett’s Tramway, Beaconsfield (Tas)
From Tram to Rail – the Warrnambool Pier Line (Vic)
Ring River bridge disaster (Tas)
Looking back: End of the Line – Bunnings Mill, Manjimup 1966 (WA)
plus the usual Industrial Railway News, Letters, Field Reports, Heritage and Tourist news - and the announcement of the winner of the 2018 JLN Southern Award.
