Date   
Light Railways 267

John Dennis
 

The mailout for Light Railways 267 will be on May 30, a week later than hoped due to availability of people. To assist those planning for meetings, here is the listing of the June meetings. Note that the Melbourne meeting will commence at the usual 8pm, not at 7:30 as shown in the magazine.

My photo above shows derelict buildings at the top of the Denniston Incline (South Island, NZ) back in 1976. Peter Evans will describe the current situation in his presentation to the Melbourne meeting.

Thank you for sharing your photos, they make a nice break in a sometimes boring day.

Dear all,

Apologies once again for filling your inboxes with off-topic emails.

I have been sorting through my Indian photographs and uploading more collections to the photo-sharing site Flickr.

Please visit:

This album includes a ride on the amazing trams round Kolkata - they are a bit battered compared to those in Melbourne! There are also shots of the city, the street scenery, taxis, the Victoria Memorial Hall, the river and the famous bridge to Howrah. There is a 2'6" gauge Bagnall plinthed by the station - which I also got to see inside. The viewer is then taken around Howrah Railway Museum where a Darjeeling B Class is preserved.

I have also uploaded a collection showing my trip to the Taj Mahal; I travelled there on a very civilised broad gauge electric train that travelled at 100mph / 161kmh and included meals in the ticket price. After the sites in Agra and before I boarded the return train to Delhi I made a detour to photograph a plinthed 2'6" gauge steam locomotive (almost back on topic), and then had to run for the train!


Take a look if you are interested.

All being well, future albums will be more on-topic as later this year I'll be back in Melbourne and Tasmania.

Cheers,

Michael Chapman

And there's more!

A further album takes the viewer round the 2'6" gauge diesel depot at Kalka - a very impressive site for the narrow gauge.

Take a look, but only if you're interested:


As the painted sign on an old wheel by the entrance to the shed said, "Man's greatest invention - keep it moving."

G'day all,

Further to my earlier emails, I have been going through my Indian photographs again.

On the 25th February I was privileged to travel on the 2'6" gauge from Shimla to Kathleeghat behind a steam locomotive.

I have to say the KSR is far superior to the Darjeeling Railway - it has better civil engineering, better signalling, better permanent way, better diesels and when I was there better views!

As a fan of the narrow gauge I have been to various 2'6" sites such as the Sittingbourne and Kemsley and the Welshpool & Llanfair in the UK, and Puffing Billy in Australia; however, the KSR is a different beast and is truly amazing.


In addition to the railway I have also included several images of the town, shops, monkeys and the view.

Take a look, but only if you are interested.

Cheers,

Michael Chapman

Yes thanks John, I originally got the lead from Trove, and ran into a blank wall of no information.

I assume that the Gairloch mill no longer exists?

Hello,

 

Have any of you chaps heard of Gairloch sugar mill?

Apparently there was an aerial ropeway supplied by Bleichert used to cross the river with cane before the bridge was built. It was erected across the Herbert River in 1883.

Hello Alan

 

Yes, CaneSIG is still very much still operating although I agree that many parts of the site haven't been recently updated... perhaps I should "upgrade" to a content management system that puts the current date at the bottom of each page displayed to suggest that the site is being constantly updated...

   :-)

 

There are certainly images of bulk sugar wagons and the like in the image collection, and there should be photos of both Moreton and Fairymead mills' molasses facilities, as well as QR molasses wagons in the Proserpine and Mackay areas. For example, I get 31 matches using molasses as a search term and 32 matches using bulk sugar as the search term.

 

I'm fairly sure that there are also photos of the various bulk sugar stores (warehouses) in Lautoka -- I took them but cannot find them in a quick search. Let me know direct if you are interested and I'll search further.

 

There are also a couple of mill maps, the easiest to find is Victoria Mill in one of the Cane Tram Notes. Use the Victoria Mill link at the bottom of https://www.zelmeroz.com/canesig/resources/resource-01.html. Other are in some of my Narrow Gauge Down Under articles.

 

There are over 14,000 images in the image collection and I haven't been able to fix all the 404 File not found errors resulting from a change of ISPs a couple of years ago. The new Linux file server is very picky about an exact case match. If you get a 404 message try changing the case of the image filename (eg gs_4603.JPG to gs_4603.jpg, etc.).

 

Finally, my QldRailHeritage.com web site is being shut down but both CaneSIG and the Modelling the Railways of Queensland Convention materials will continue as part of zelmeroz.com.

 

Best wishes, Lynn

Hi  

Thanks Greg and Ian for the swift feedback 

I used to be signed up to Lyn Zelmer's Cane SIG  but was not sure if it was still active as have seen nothing for quite a while. It it still operating? However there was much interesting on it and I used some of the information for my visit to Queensland in late 2008.

The loco shed material is very good and I will probably use some of this but again not too much on the bulk sugar loading. . Will have to consult Google Earth to see what I can see on the Herbert valley mills.

Thanks again

Updated Vicmap maps for Memory Map

John Cleverdon
 

Hello all,
For those of you who have the Memory Map software and Vicmap maps, Memory Map now has updated (early 2019) the Vicmap maps, at 1:25,000, 1:50,000 and 1:100,000 scales covering the entire state for sale.

If you already have the Memory Map software, you can do it from within the software (or login at: https://w2.memory-map.com/login.htm). The cost is AU$55 (upgrade) or AU$110 (new purchase).
The new maps are called 'VicMap Topo 25k 2019', 'VicMap Topo 50k 2019' and 'VicMap Topo 100k 2019'. All three are covered in the above price.

If you don't have the software, it is free and can be downloaded at: https://memory-map.com/Mapping_Software.html (you only pay for the maps)

These updated Victorian topographic maps look good, and the hillshading on the 1:100,000 scale maps looks good once you get in to the more hilly areas.

The best way to download the entire maps for each of the 3 scales once you have bought them is to update the Memory Map software to v6.2.2 (available on the website - see: https://memory-map.com/Mapping_Software_Downloads.html)

Once this is installed, use the Map -> Digital Map Store -> Download Whole Map for each of the Vicmap 25k / 50k / 100k scales.
Note that you will need a good Net connection for this, the 25k / 50k / 100k maps are roughly 3.5GB / 1.2GB / 400MB respectively.

Regards,
John

G'day all,

Further to my earlier emails, I have been going through my Indian photographs again.

On the 25th February I was privileged to travel on the 2'6" gauge from Shimla to Kathleeghat behind a steam locomotive.

I have to say the KSR is far superior to the Darjeeling Railway - it has better civil engineering, better signalling, better permanent way, better diesels and when I was there better views!

As a fan of the narrow gauge I have been to various 2'6" sites such as the Sittingbourne and Kemsley and the Welshpool & Llanfair in the UK, and Puffing Billy in Australia; however, the KSR is a different beast and is truly amazing.

The link to the images is here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/55958391@N07/albums/72157708034220474

In addition to the railway I have also included several images of the town, shops, monkeys and the view.

Take a look, but only if you are interested.

Cheers,

Michael Chapman

Dear all,

Apologies in advance for filling your inboxes with off-topic emails.

I have been going through my Indian photos again and have uploaded another collection to Flickr.

This album takes the viewer on the return journey from Shimla down to Kalka by diesel.

G'day all,

Further to my earlier emails, I have been going through my Indian photographs again.

On the 25th February I was privileged to travel on the 2'6" gauge from Shimla to Kathleeghat behind a steam locomotive.

I have to say the KSR is far superior to the Darjeeling Railway - it has better civil engineering, better signalling, better permanent way, better diesels and when I was there better views!

As a fan of the narrow gauge I have been to various 2'6" sites such as the Sittingbourne and Kemsley and the Welshpool & Llanfair in the UK, and Puffing Billy in Australia; however, the KSR is a different beast and is truly amazing.

The link to the images is here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/55958391@N07/albums/72157708034220474

In addition to the railway I have also included several images of the town, shops, monkeys and the view.

Take a look, but only if you are interested.

Cheers,

Michael Chapman

Dear All,

Last month I travelled on the 'Indian Magic' tour with Darjeeling Tours. Unfortunately the weather wasn't too kind in and around Darjeeling with lots of cloud and fog.

However; I have started to work through the thousands of images I captured and have uploaded some collections to Flickr.

On-shed at Siliguri Junction is here:
