Have you received your copy of Light Railways No.251 yet? It was posted on Wednesday 5 October and seems to be going through the postal system rather slowly. I would be interested to know what parts of Australia it has arrived in so far.

Hi Chris,

A private email is about to head your way with an image of the sign I am using as my source for my statement the tramway was horse drawn. As this was in the 1950s according to the sign, I also am curious, thus my posts here after our weekend visit.

Did the sign really say the trolley was house drawn? I wonder how that worked!

Re: Fort Lytton Brisbane

Additional data has arrived courtesy of John Browning. The three sets of tracks in the disinfecting building were autoclaves on the outer two and the middle was the inbound line from the wharf on the “soiled / foul side” with the trolley luggage contents transferred to the two sets of trolley / autoclaves systems. That means the autoclave trollies themselves were on a closed internal system within the building. On the “clean side”, ie the output side of the autoclave, the middle set of tracks led outside through a door I did not notice or since removed, to where the luggage was processed and eventually returned to the owners.

 

The quarantine station is a very interesting place both for the general history as well as the tramway aspect and highly recommended although it is only open on a few special occasions.  The other side of the same site, the fort area including its own tramways, has more frequent open days http://www.nprsr.qld.gov.au/parks/fort-lytton/

Here are a few light hearted Facebook images of the Lytton facilities so click through if interested. The trolley with the luggage at the autoclave would have been originally loaded from the ship at the wharf. It then would have been house drawn (according to the sign) up to the disinfecting building and into the autoclave at the “soiled end” to emerge at the “clean side”. It then would need to be returned to the wharf back through the autoclave etc, as I did not see rails in the grass on the other side of the building wall in that immediate area, although they could have been removed of course and the wall repanelled. The autoclave area had three sets of rails on the dock side so perhaps there were three autoclaves as the building had space for three units, although only one remaining now. As the disinfecting room probably did not use horse power within the building, I suggest the trolleys were manually moved through the building.
