Re: Cudgen sugar mill

Bruce Wood
 

Hi Peter and all,
 
Peter - fantastic research – I enjoy reading through what you have uncovered.
 
Having a look at this map in detail, there does not appear to be any reference to the Crabbes Creek tramway? Can anyone else see it, (am I going blind?), or offer a suggestion on why it is not recorded?
 
I forget off-hand exactly the year it ceased operation, however I would have thought the track work would have still been in place in 1974 / 1976?
 
 
Best regards
Bruce Wood

The Norries Head 1942 topographical map (extract) https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByB-ppGeDyvwejI4ZE5ZY0t1bGs/edit  is part of my investigation of the site of the Cudgen sugar mill.

I marked the Cudgen Public School and the present day Crescent Street which was the main road north to the Tweed River up to about the mid 1980s. The sugar mill chimney is marked as a trig point (160 ft high) east of the school and under the name Cudgen. This chimney was destroyed in 1962. The present day main road (Tweed Coast Rd) goes through the general sugar mill site. 

The mineral sands tramway is shown on the coast to the south. Part of the map was also in Jim Longworth ‘s “The titanium tramway at Cudgen” in Light Railways 207, June 2009. Map from the Murwillumbah branch of the Richmond Tweed Regional Library. I scanned as A3 and merged.

There will be a follow up post with the tramway routes via 1974 and 1976 topographical maps.

Cheers

“The titanium tramway at Cudgen” is described in Light Railways 207 (June 2009). The article includes a section of a 1942 topographic map on page 4 which marks the location of a chimney on the eastern edge of Cudgen. The chimney, presumably at the site of the old sugar mill, would have been approximately 150 metres north of the intersection of (what is now) Cudgen Road and the Tweed Coast Road, on land now occupied by the road alignment between the intersection and Chinderah. Within Cudgen there is a housing development adjacent to this area, accessed by John Robb Way.

The Condong sugar tramway routes are on the following three maps.

Northern area from the Cudgen 1974 map. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByB-ppGeDyvwaDg4R0VHNFlFLWs/edit  

I marked the Cudgen Public School and the present day Crescent Street which was the main road north to the Tweed River up to about the mid-1980s. The approx site of the Cudgen sugar mill is also marked although the map does not show a tramway to the former depot there. The Cudgen Public School today is at the same location as marked on the 1942 topographical map. The mineral sands area is also marked on the original 1974 map along the coast.

Condong Sugar Mill and lines to the east from the Murwillumbah 1976 map https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByB-ppGeDyvwSWtSTTNuaGNJZmc/edit  

Condong Sugar Mill lines to the north from the Murwillumbah 1976 map https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByB-ppGeDyvwSnJLLUNMTjkxOUk/edit  

Unfortunately there is a horizontal sliver of a gap between the two Murwillumbah 1976 map scans although the river allows clues to determine the locations. The portion of tramway missing is main truck line without any branch lines.

The Condong sugar tramway crossed the Pacific Highway at three places; (1) Condong Mill (2) Cudgen Mill line to the Chinderah wharf before the truck line was built directly to the mill late 1950s and (3) the line to Dodds Island as shown on the Cudgen 1974 map where the Pacific Highway is known locally as Oak Ave 28°15'16.05"S 153°31'41.06"E. Melaleuca Station Memorial Gardens and Crematorium is just south of that former tramway highway crossing site. Before it became a crematorium, Melaleuca Station was a tourist venture including static Melbourne suburban carriages and operating Marian Mill’s 0-6-2T Perry 2601.51.1 of 1951. The junction of the new Pacific Motorway and the former Pacific Highway (The Tweed Valley Way) route to Murwillumbah is also in the general area where the tramway crossed the Pacific Highway.  

The reference to the line crossing the Pacific Highway in that area was in LRRSA yahoogroup message 7459 Re Harwood sugar mill tramway by Barry Campbell Aug 23, 2014; 

(quote) According to what I have read (Principally the article in the ARHS Bulletin of June 1976) there was a line from the old Cudgen Mill to a wharf at Chinderah which was made redundant by a link line from Tumbulgum to Cudgen built in the late 1950s.  My grandfather moved to Fingal 1961 or 62 and we made the trip up from Lismore regularly for weekends until 1966 and I don’t remember the wharf line crossing the highway.  Otherwise, the Pacific Highway crossed the Condong system twice (sort of).  Once at the mill where both 610mm and standard gauge crossed the highway and entered the mill. The second place was in Oak Avenue where the private line belonging to either Mr Byrne or Mr Brinsmead crossed on its way to join the main system.  I found remains of this line in 1986 but I can’t see them now as I drive past.  This line went to Dodds Island (Not Stotts Island as the 1976 article states) and the bridge still exists. In 1986 it even still had some tram line on it. (end quote)

I spent three days at Wharf Station manning a publicity / trade stand for the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway.

Hello Frank,

The other book you ordered is not yet on its way to you, it was packed today and I intend to take it to the post office tomorrow.

If you do not want it let me know. We can cancel your order and refund your money.

"Climax a locomotive resurrected" is out of stock and out of print. Sadly, the publishers (not the LRRSA) did not want to hold stock and only printed 500. So the only way of getting that book now is on the second-hand market, unfortunately.

Hello Frank,

The other book you ordered is not yet on its way to you, it was packed today and I intend to take it to the post office tomorrow.

If you do not want it let me know. We can cancel your order and refund your money.

"Climax a locomotive resurrected" is out of stock and out of print. Sadly, the publishers (not the LRRSA) did not want to hold stock and only printed 500. So the only way of getting that book now is on the second-hand market, unfortunately.

Re: LRRSA membership renewals online

Frank (Savery),

I surmise you have followed a link from another page, possibly the web site where publications are listed. Climax, a loco resurrected does not appear on the shop site if you do a search, so a direct link is the only way you could have gone to the page. What you didn't notice, because it's a omission, is that under the title the words "In stock" do not appear, as the do for all books available to be ordered. 

Perhaps I should remove it from the LRRSA web site, or simply add the words "Out of Print" in large letters to the description in the shop, which would help people following old links.
