Hi Bill,

Issue #33 of LR contains a single paragraph about the Tullah Tramway, an
announcement that they were hoping to restore Wee Georgie Wood. There are a
few other references to the Tullah Tram in Light Railways, most recently in
issue 215 (October 2010) where there is a delightful article. No track plans
though - I don't believe I have ever seen any track plans.

I don't know what you already have about the tramway, but I wrote a small
column in Narrow Gauge Downunder recently, which has been made available
from a tasmanian website:
http://www.westernwilderness.com.au/clients/westcoast/downloads/Farrell%20Tramway%20-%20finalised%20proofs%202.pdf

I think I have some photos in my collection showing the mine area. I will
dig around and see what I can find which might help you.

Re: Tullah

Hello Bill,

I have just checked LR33. The only reference to Tullah that is in it is
this news item:

Tullah Tramway (2-ft. gauge)
The Electrolytic Zinc Company has decided that the 0-4-0WT Fowler
locomotive, "Wee Georgie Wood" will be restored and put on display at
Tullah. The engine's working life was ended in 1962 by the completion of
the Murchison Highway, connecting Queenstown and Burnie. For a few more
years it hauled ore trucks half a mile from the Mount Farrell mines to
the flotation plant at Tullah. Since the EZ takeover of the Mount
Farrell Mining Company in 1964 the locomotive has worked only once, to
give joy rides to company officials and their families over the
remaining half mile of track.
Although the EZ Co. has made a firm decision to preserve the locomotive,
the exact method of display has not yet been decided.
(Saturday Evening Mercury, 26th. Sept. 1970)

Unfortunately there are no photographs, track layouts, or other
illustrations.

Regards,

Frank

Subject: Re: [TrainColSoc]Bassett-Lowke "Father of Model and Miniature
Railways."
From: locks.siding@btinternet.com
Date: Sun, 16 Jan 2011 18:40:55 +0000

This weekend an important event took place with the first steaming
for many years at the Rhyl Miniature Railway of the Barnes of Rhyl
built 4-4-2 "Michael." This newly reboilered loco along with its five
sisters was designed by Henry Greenly chief engineer to Bassett-
Lowke. It was the final development of B-L/Greenly's long line of
"Atlantics" which started with the "Little Giant" series.

This year Saturday-Monday May 28th-30th there is to be a Grand Gala at
the Rhyl Miniature Railway to celebrate the line's centenary.
Bassett-Lowke was the builder of this railway now the oldest 15" gauge
public railway in the UK. Greenly was the engineer.

In the care of the RMR trustees are three of the 1920s "Atlantic"
locos, two "Joan" and Michael" built by Barnes for the line and,
the third "Railway Queen" built initially for another customer. On
permanent loan to the railway, but not in running condition, is
"Billy" one of the locos built for the RMR but now owned by the
local authority. It is hoped that at the Gala the other two Barnes
locos (the firm only built six) "John" and "Billie" now in private
hands will join them. "John" once ran at Rhyl. "Billie" was built by
Barnes for another client.

" Michael" will share the services with "Joan," who has borne the
brunt of the traffic in recent years, on the RMR trains at Easter
when the railway opens for the 2011 season.. The RMR Museum,
housed at the railway's Central Station by the Marine Lake,
recently achieved accredited museum status. Here one can see
"Billy" plus a collection of early Bassett-Lowke models and much
else. "Railway Queen" quietly awaits restoration. WJ Bassett-
Lowke and Henry Greenly would be proud to see that their
handiwork has survived for 100 years.

G’day Richard,

Thanks for that clarification. It looks a bit different to the actual patent which I think only had two cylinders. I note that the particular locomotive in the photo does not have full length frames as the front bogie is hung off the smokebox, which would have placed the pulling forces on the boiler itself.

Regards,

Bill.

I've now been to Ricardoes twice to pick strawberries (they are really nice). There are now railways in the strawberry building, all picking is done by hand as they grow an A-frames about 2 metres high. The public can pick strawberries but not tomatoes.
I didn't go into the tomato building but you can see in through large windows from the cafe. The tomato vines hang from the roof and grow to over 3 metres high. Between each row of plants is a type of railway. The rail is made of steel pipe around 40mm diameter, at each end of the rows the concrete floor is higher and the pipe rests on the concrete, between the plants the floor is lower and the pipe is supported on legs which are welded to flat plates which act as sleepers. at the ends the pipes are bent and welded together so it makes the shape of a very narrow and long rectangle. I would estimate the distance between the pipes to be 450mm to 600mm.
I saw two types of rolling stock:

1. a small flat tolley which is pushed by hand and used to carry containers when picking from the lower part of the vines.
2. a trolley with a scissor lift mounted on it and used to pick from higher up. This one is self propelled by chain drive from a small electric motor similar to a large wiper motor or wheelchair motor. It is powered by a couple of truck batteries carried on the trolley. I didn't see any pumps to power the ram used to raise and lower the platform, maybe a fixed pump somewhere sets it to the height required.

The trolleys are moved along the rows by a hand pallet trolley which places the trolley onto the concrete, the trolley is then driven or pushed onto the pipe rails.
Almost forgot the wheels. They are fairly small, approx 150mm diameter with a flat tread about 75mm wide and a flange on the outer edge so the flanges run along the outer edges of the pipe rails.

I hope this info is what you were after, I'll upload some photos when I return home, it would take too long on the mobile broadband I'm using.

Regards,
Chris

This 9 ton  loco was #1 'Baby' of the Hemlock Central RR,  Ephraim Shay's own 2' 6" gauge line at Harbor Springs,  Michigan, serving his private water works and logging operations.  #1 was built after 1894, the earliest photo of it being in 1897, at which time it had a domeless boiler.  Shay and his son, Lette, ran tourist trains on the line in the summer at 25c a head, as in this photo.  They built two further Shay locomotives for the line.  Shay sold his waterworks to the local village in 1913 and died in 1916.

For more information on this and further views of  'Baby' and her two sister locos, see pages 66 to 73 of Michael Koch's 'The Shay Locomotive Titan Of The Timber' (488 pages, limited edition, World Press, Inc., USA, 1971).
