Hi Greg,
             Google 'CaneSig'. Hundreds of photos and drawings to be found on there.

  Same state is good.
  I am trying to work out a way to get cane locos on a Batlow-ish layout :-)

Hi All,

I have just joined the group as I am very interested in the Cane Railways of Queensland. I have just returned from Cairns where I was amazed at just how comprehensive they are.

I model electric trams in 7mm scale and I would love to work in a small section of cane railways on my layout ( I know the cane railways did not run near electric tramways but I do model Brisbane trams as well so I'm in the same state!!!) and I was wondering if someone could point me in the direction where I might be able to get some loco drawings, I would like to do some of the current 0-6-0 fleet preferably or even some of the double truck versions.

Would anyone be able to assist me please?

best wishes

Did the steam trams in Rockhampton run anywhere near the sugar tramways?

Or would the closest tramway have been the Brisbane tramways and the cane tramways at Nambour? (I wish I had paid more attention to the latter when it was still running).

Geoffrey

Hi Brian,

Wow, what a response, I guess any would be good but mainly I am interested in what South Johnstone uses as 0-6-0's, I think their 1-7 types, I'm sorry I am unfamiliar with them as individual locos, I always liked the old Clydes with the ridge along the hood but the current batch seem a bit more brutish, perhaps if I can find a picture and post it so you will know what I am after.

Thank you for your response.

Greg

Greg, what country are you in, please.

That could have quite an impact on the price of a book :-)

For example I saw a copy of Made by Baldwin for sale in England last week - quite a few drawings in that.

Coolangatta airport tramway 1939

Petan
 

 A mile and a third of narrow gauge line tramway with tractor haulage was used to transport gravel for the construction of the runways for Coolangatta Aerodrome in 1939. The quarry is suspected to be the Miles St quarry now the site of the electrical substation. This is right on the state border. My only source of data so far is this trove report.


Tweed Daily (Murwillumbah, NSW: 1914 - 1949), Thursday 18 May 1939, page 7 http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article192298711

 

The metalling of the three runways Mr. Jeffrey estimated, will take about 12 months. 

Metal Carried On Miniature 'Trains.. 

The metal — yellow-coloured C grade stone, which will crush under a roller and constant use to a smooth powder like surface — is being transported by trolley from a quarry at the foot of the north-west side of Mt Murraba. Most of the 20 men employed on the job are working at the quarry, filling the tip-trucks. There are two sets of five trucks, which form two small trains. These are drawn alternately to the aerodrome along a mile and a third of narrow-gauge line by a tractor. The average time taken on a return trip is half an hour. While many men are engaged in filling the trucks, only two are required to spread the metal to a thickness of about three inches between the times of arrival of the train. Mr. Jeffrey said he had met with great difficulty in building the trolley line over the swampy country between the quarry and the aerodrome. The line kept on sinking, he said, and if all the metal he had used for filling the swamp had been used on the aerodrome he would be much further ahead than he was.

Dear all,
 
Last weekend the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway in Porthmadog ran a special event called 'Slate, Steam and Sail'.
 
There were three visiting Quarry Class 0-4-0 Hunslets, a display from Porthmadog Maritime Museum and a slate splitter.
 
A collection of photos can be seen here:
 
 
Take a look if you're interested.

Re: Cudgen sugar mill

The main Condong tramway network was lifted very soon after traffic ended at the end of the 1974 season.

I suspect that the same would have happened at Crabbes Creek.

 

(Of course track being lifted does not mean that the line would automatically disappear from a map!)

Re: : Re: Cudgen sugar mill

Hi Peter,
 
Yes – it was the Norries Head 1942, map to which I was looking at.
 
The cane fields appear to be a reasonable size, and I would have liked to see how extensive the tramway system was?
 
Thanks again!

The Crabbes Creek sugar area is marked on the Norries 1942 map although the tramway is not marked. The Murwillumbah 1976 map only went as far south as 28 22’30” and east to 153 30’00” so not as far south as Crabbes Creek.
 
Thanks Bruce for your kind words! The topic has fascinated me and when I discovered the maps were in the Murwillumbah library which now allows A3 scanning to memory stick, I took the opportunity to scan them when down there last week. Not sure if other LRRSA yahoogroup members also have the maps.

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?

Thanks John for the clarification on the dates.
 
I was expecting that the track work would have still been in place for a few years after the tramway ceased operation?
