Southern Forests Narrow Gauge Convention 2012

ianj0trains <ianaj@...>
 

Hi All,

I realised today that it's possible there are people on this forum who are not on the AusNG yahoo forum as well, and who may not be aware there is the Southern Forests Narrow Gauge Convention occuring on March 18th, in the Gemco Theatre at Emerald, Victoria.

The topics being covered are listed below.

We believe it will be a very interesting day, superb value for money, and encourage those who haven't yet registered to do so. Please note you have to register and pay prior to selecting your clinics, this is to ensure those who have paid get the best chance of attending the ones they prefer. I won't list all the speakers, suffice to say they all know their subject material.

The Future Direction of Puffing Billy (Eamonn Seddon, CEO PBPS)
NG railway modelling in NZ (Russell Postlewaight from NZ)
The history of the Corinella and Blackwood Forest Tramway
The NA class loco, and what has been changed to keep these veterans running into the future
Building Outback Model Company kits
Modelling in Sn3&1/2
The Cummins Smith Distillation Plant at Britannia Creek
Painting Models (NOTE: Only 3 places left in this clinic.)
Correcting and detailing the Model Company Krauss loco kit
Making realistic gum trees
The Art & Architecture of Queensland's 19th Century American Locomotives
Railway Ambulances
Making realistic gum trees
Prototype Freelancing
Painting Model Figures
Narrow Gauge Modelling, Materials and Methods

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on the day. If you haven't got a registration form, they're available from David Axup at daxup@... or myself, ianaj@...

As noted in the advertisements in Narrow Gauge Downunder Magazine and on the AusNG forum registration beforehand is compulsory, and they close on February 19th.

Regards

Ian Johnston
on behalf, Southern Forests Narrow Gauge Committee

Hello,

portable tracks still can be observed on Java on these mills:

- Asembagus
- Panji
- Maybe Olean (trains are often replaced by trucks now)
- Wringinanom
- Sumberharjo
- Maybe Jatiroto and Semboro (I haven't been there yet)

All other mills have terminated their field line activities. Rail
activities in these mills have been reduced to shunting in the factory
or completely terminated.

G'day all

At John Browning's suggestion I've been working on a Light Railways
article
on portable railways, such as those used for manual and animal power
tramways in the early days of sugar plantations, some use of which has
lasted into the current century in Fiji, Indonesia, etc.

The article has now gone well beyond my knowledge base for modelling, and
John is busy finishing up a book, so I'm appealing for help from
anyone who
knows what companies (Decauville, O&K, Hudson, Gregg, etc.) supplied
portable systems to what countries, mills or plantations, and at what time
and through what agents. I know about Decauville and Homebush Mill but
otherwise...

As well, under what conditions are portable railways still being used?

Many thanks for your assistance

Lynn,
Portable sections of 2 ft gauge track were used across the quarry floors at Pikes Hill at Kiama to convey blue metal blocks loaded into railed trucks by hand, to the crushers . These trucks were either then propelled by hand or by horse to the crushers. The track position was varied as the quarry walls were broken down and the working faces changed. Small turntables were incorporated in this system of temporary trackage in use in the 1920s and 30s

Lynn,
At Racecourse Mill they still have some sections of line which are referred to as "Horse Lines", loco's cannot go over these tracks as the rail is too light, the farmer normally pulls the bins with a tractor to where they are loaded and then pulled back again by tractor to the siding, you can see one of these lines just across the road from the General Gordon pub. See link and look for line with a dog-leg slightly to the north opposite side of the road to the pub.

I had a look over the fence at the Big Pineapple on the Sunshine Coast and
the rail line looked rusty and unused.

I took some last photos of the Moreton Mill site at Nambour, surveying has
started for the Cole to be built there.

Re: Hoffman Steam Brick and Pottery site

There is currently a display of historic photographs of Brunswick at the Counihan Gallery - mainly using multiple projectors running several simultaneous cycles (so the interesting ones disappear too fast and the others stay too long!)
http://www.moreland.vic.gov.au/arts-and-festivals/counihan-gallery/current-exhibition.html
The exhibition includes a section on the potteries and brickworks of Brunswick including a photograph of bricks being loaded into VR trucks at Hoffamn and, I think, the crossing over Albert St. There are also several photographs of the Royal Park horse tram.

Other images of teh brickworks at the State Library including tramways are:

Well there is a well-known photograph of the bricks being loaded at No 1
kiln - the original one - into I trucks which would support the VR having a
siding to the site - as well as the MMBW plans which clearly show the siding
and it is mentioned in the General Appendix's. I imagine that the VR might
have had a siding file in their records so maybe check the PRO



There was a light railway around the kilns to moved fired and green bricks
but I am not sure what the gauge was. The kilns were altered to allow
forklifts to do the job and that was what was being used when I inspected
the works.



The clay pits were closed many years before the works and I have no details
and I don't recall anything in the technical literature such as the Clay
Products Journal. There might be more information in the Hoffman papers at
the Uni of Melbourne archives.



When I last looked the Brunswick library had a "Hoffman Collection" which
contained a number of articles on the site including my unpublished reports
and my articles in Australasian Historical Archaeology and Industrial
archaeology Review. That might be a useful place to visit to collect
background information on the site.

Graham,



Have a look at the following URL
http://www.reading.ac.uk/web/FILES/merl/Microsoft_Word_-_Fowler_workshop_pac
k.pdf.



This will give you a good outline of what's available. Also be sure to
search the photo collection at The Museum of English Rural Life (Reading
University) there is a chance that builders pics of these or similar engines
may be online there.



I have obtained drawings from Reading before and they were a pleasure to
deal with- helpful & prompt.

Re: John Fowler Works photos

David Halfpenny
 

You should have a few keen customers on this list Graham!

And maybe a few more in England among Garden Railwaymen.
One company makes very nice gas-fired steam model of the Innisfail 0-6-0 tender Fowlers, and another makes a coal-fired Moreton 0-6-0T.
Some people reckon that these engines don't look 'English' enough (where do they think Leeds is, for heaven's sake?) and a switch of platework to Kiama style might well please them considerably.

You have a head start because you know the construction numbers. They may
have paperwork for these exact locomotives. If not, they may have it for
something of the same type and period.

Charges for good quality prints depend on both the size and the purpose.
Although this material is out of Copyright, MERL hold the Reproduction
Rights.

The Story of the Steam Plough Works has a 50mm x 70mm view of 5265 on p
326, with a note that it was smart and businesslike, to 1067mm gauge, and
fitted with outside Stephenson gear.
MERL may have a copy, but they may not if the print was taken in Australia.
The locomotive looks to be in new condition, though it is a three-quarter
view (unusual for a Works shot) and has some writing on the print which
appears to be a Sydney address.

There is nothing about 16089 ( frustratingly, 16090 is pictured).

Hi,

I am not sure this will help in the search for Fowler drawings but I have a Booklet called "Fowler Locomotives in the Kingdom of Hawaii", by Jesse C. Conde and published by the Narrow Gauge Railway Society.  They called this "Special Issue of the Narrow Gauge No. 140".  ISBN 0 9507169 4 4 and is marked 4.50 British Pounds.  

It has a number of good pictures and drawings of both Locomotives and Cane Cars.

I can provide more details if requested.

Graham,

While it is true that Reading University holds the JF records and the staff are most helpful (I've spent many pleasant days there), the photographs are in large albums, but the glass plate negatives are kept by a private individual on behalf of the Museum.

I have three copy negatives (from the prints) of the two Kiama locos (there are two views of 5265) and I will scan and email these to you.  They will be infinitely better than anything copied from a book.  Please allow me a few days to find the time to do this.
