G'day Bill,

don't think it's been mentioned yet, there are around 1000 articles on the NLA newspaper site....

http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/result?q=tullah+tram&exactPhrase=&anyWords=¬Words=&l-textSearchScope=*ignore*|*ignore*&fromdd=&frommm=&fromyyyy=&todd=&tomm=&toyyyy=&l-word=*ignore*|*ignore*&sortby=

probably not much in the way of images, but plenty of words.

Fantastic resource, along with the NAA - http://www.naa.gov.au/collection/recordsearch.aspx plenty of Tassie rail material, including bags of drawings.

cheers,
Bob

Bill,
If memory serves, there is more detail of the "main line" end of the Tullah tramway in some older ARHS bulletins - I don't have copies handy but others here might be able to delve into their archives...

If you want the current 'heritage' arrangements, the Quail Tasmanian rail atlas should have the entire layout.

Cheers,
Frank Strik

A quick look at what's available via Picture Australia (Search on Tullah), doesn't reveal much. There is a general view of the mine, but no railway lines can be seen. One other photo is of a train on a truss bridge.

Yes, I've not entered this discussion, because, apart from the written
detail given in Lou Rae's books, all of my material is either of locomotives
or rolling stock, various lineside views and some pictures of the exchange
arrangements with the EBR. I have never seen actual track diagrams of any
part of the line.

I think that there are probably sufficient photos taken at Farrell Siding,
plus written descriptions, to come up with a pretty reasonable idea of the
track plan there. I was under the impression that Bill wanted plans of the
mine area, which was much less visited, being beyond the "station" in the
township of Tullah.

Hi Dennis,
Thank you for the copy of your article from Narrow Gauge Down Under (NGDU).  I subscribe to that magazine and have 33 issues of it.  My subscription expired with issue 38 and when I renewed they were suppose to start it with issue #39.  When I got the next issue I had a second copy of issue #38 and the current issue #40.  I am guessing this article of yours was in issue 39.  I have to email them and have them send me a copy of issue 39.
As soon as I read that you wrote the article for NGDU and pulled all my copies off the shelf. For those who don't get NGDU, Dennis is a feature writer for the magazine.  He writes an interesting article each issue called "Off The Beaten Path, Lesser know but interesting narrow gauge railways".  I also have to say at this point that NGDU is getting more popular here in the USA with each issue.
So I looked through each of my 33 or so back issues.  In issue 15 their are a couple pictures of a Turnout from the Railway at Tullah.  Then in issue 16, I found three pictures taken by Eric Marsh back in 1964.  I have to do a search for Eric, maybe someone here knows him.
A few minutes ago I got a return email from Weston Langford.  He doesn't have any information on a track plan but he said he is passing my request to a few friends who might have what I am looking for.

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.

Hi Frank,
Thank you for looking and letting me know. I do appreciate that.
I will wait a bit and see if Weston Langford has anything in the way of a track plan.  If that doesn't work out I will take the pictures I have and come up with something.

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

I'm not sure if you've seen these yet, but some really interesting photos to
help you can be found if you go to http://westonlangford.com/search/ and
search for Tullah.

There seem to be some wonderful modelling possibilities shown.

I'm afraid I don't have a track plan but maybe someone else on here may have
or may know where to find one.

UK: Rhyl Miniature Railway Centenary

Bill Bolton
 

Seen on the Train Collector's Society group today....

Railways."

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 all and apologies for the cross-posting

I've replied to the query below with the address of the Wee Georgie
Wood Steam Railway and the LRRSA site but thought that members of
these two groups might have additional information to assist an
overseas modeller.

Thanks and best wishes,
Lynn

Hi Lynn,

My name is Bill Fornshell, I live in San Antonio, TX - USA.

Do you have any information on the Tullah Mining Area. I found some
photos but I am trying to find a track plan for the area around the
mine. This area and mine looks like it would be great on a section
of a layout.

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.

Bill,

Ephraim Shay's three locos on the Hemlock Central RR were all different and dstinctively so...and this one is definitely No.1.

Cheers,

Richard

This is one of the locos that Ephraim Shay built himself, rather than

those built by Lima to Shay's patent.
