Date   

Sandstone (South Africa) 2011 events

Roderick Smith
 

Just announced: a whole one-week extravanza, and guests with steam experience can have hands on. John and I have had great days at Sandstone (610 mm gauge) as part of one of Geoff's extended tours. Steam in Action is a consortium of preservation groups, established to attempt to arrest further losses in retained national-collection locos, and to try to keep mainline charters running.

Regards,
Roderick B Smith

Four Garratts on one train and a supporting cast of another 18 steam
locomotives, a Sherman tank and a team of trek oxen. Interested?

Sandstone Estates and South Africa's Steam in Action group are planning a week long steam gala for next April. They have asked Geoff's Trains Limited to offer a package of gala, transport and accommodation that will make it easier and cheaper for overseas visitors, and non Steam in Action members, to access the event. We are happy to oblige.

Sandstone is a large and very modern commercial farm on the Lesoto border in South Africa's Freestate Province, about a 5 hour drive from Johannesburg. All of their narrow gauge locomotives will all be in operation through the week. Wilf Mole, owner and organiser of the event, believes that the best way to maximise the experience is to leave much of the programme unstructured, and then respond to the requests of the participants. I will be hosting the tour and we should have a good influence in what happens.

Also operating during the week, and being positioned to give nteresting railway photographs, will be the extensive military vehicle collection, agricultural vehicles, traction engines and trek oxen.

As Sandstone's extensive railway is all on private land, enthusiasts are welcome to get involved in loco preparation, firing and driving, as well as in the operation of the other heritage resources. If you have the necessary experience, an opportunity not to be missed.

Prices for the package will be available in a few days. If you are interested in joining us, let me know by going to our web page at:
www.geoffs-trains.com/SouthAfrica/SandstoneGala2011.html
(A good level of interest prior to finalising the price can keep the cost down.)

A second tour to South Africa will visit Sandstone in June 2011. This wil be part of our trans - African steam enthusiast tour, details can be found at: www.geoffs-trains.com/africa2011.html

Mount Strickland and Mount Ritchie logging track - Marysville area

John M.
 

I found this snippet in the current edition of Bushwalking Victoria News and thought it might be of interest in regard to the loggging history of the Marysville area:
"
Lowering Gear track Reopened after 2009 Fires
One of the welcome (very few!) outcomes from the 2009
fires is that some of our old walking tracks are now
accessible to walkers for the first time in many years. One
of these tracks is the Lowering Gear Track located south
of Marysville, off the Acheron Way about 4km past the
Granton Rd turnoff
This track was used to lower timber taken from the Mt
Strickland and Mt Richie areas, and there is evidence still
to be seen of the old winch apparatus and special
channels cut into the hillside to facilitate the gradual
lowering of what were clearly huge timbers.
Kim guided his grateful acolytes straight up, a climb of
around 600m in conditions that proved to be colder and
wetter the higher we climbed. At the end of this little
adventure of over 18km, there was the usual pedometer vs
GPS debate about how much the walk exceeded this
distance.
Edited from Footnotes, Vol 30 No 9, Oct 2010
Maroondah Bushwalking Club
"

the reference to Mt Richie is a typo.

Re: Yallourn Briquette Factory, 1924

In the photo newly laid track (without the haulage rope) appears to be part of a terminal loop. The tommy dodd rollers would have subsequently given no end of problems.

Excellent, John.  So, we missed that by 6 weeks!  Oh, and yes, you will be getting some pics in due course.

Not an Australian n.g. train but definitely worthy of notice is the latest

chapter in the Welsh Highland revival.



A short video and a newspaper article sum it up nicely.

Stil a few things to sort out - Portmadoc Harbour Station has to be rebuilt

and peace in our time has to be achieved with the Welsh Highland Heritage

mob on the other side of town.



Hopefully the next couple of years will see regular services throughout the

whole length of the line as well as Welsh Highland Heritage Trains operating

on a frequent basis.



Apologies to all who may be offended by the sight of Welsh narrow gauge on

this group.

LRRSA - Southern Forests Tour - Geeveston to Cockle Creek 18-21 February 2011.

Frank Stamford
 

Hello all,

A preliminary notification about this tour went out with the latest (October) issue of "Light Railways".

Would anybody who may be interested in going and who has not yet responded please do so promptly. A response at this early stage does not mean you are committing yourself to going, it is simply an expression of interest, however it will be necessary to make firm bookings fairly soon.

We are currently trying to gauge the level of interest so that we can work out the logistics of transport and accommodation.

This is a rare opportunity to visit some very interesting country under expert guidance. The area has an extremely rich railway/tramway history but it is not easy to find the remains on a casual visit.

The trip will also include a visit to the Ida Bay Railway.

Regards,

Frank

Death of Lon Wymond

Bill Russell
 

Lon Wymond died on Friday.

Lon was elected president of the PBPS in July 1961 replacing H.L.Hewett. At that time the
VR was strongly considering abandoning the rebuilding of the line beyong Belgrave due to
Hewett's inability to negotiate with the VR or the membership of the PBPS.

Lon was asked to stand as President, He did and won. As a result negotiations with the VR
and work on rebuilding continued.

Due to Lon's efforts we have Puffing Billy. Thanks Lon.

For those who don't know Puffuing Billy was the first Preserved line opened in Australia.

Regards,

Bill Russell

Hi all,
I have suffered from a major  burst of enthusiasm. I have started work again  on finishing the final chapters as an addition to the Moreton Mill centenary  book. This would  deal with the closure  of the Mill its last day and demolition. I am after the following:
 
 a pic / image of the last loaded train on the last run,
 
sightings on the LAST DAY and times from anybody who was there.
 
details of when the various locos were transferred north particularly Bli Bli and Petrie
 
 the name of the driver of Petrie on the last run (perhaps Ron A may know) And confirmation of the other drivers
 
and when / where the last sections of track were lifted  Dates etc was it 2004 or 2005
 
The stop work order place on ripping the track up  when it was place by whom and when it was lifted
 
Dates when the mill itself was demolished.
 
What is preserved and where? locos buildings wagons etc
 
Any other bits and pieces of the Period relating to 3rd Dec 2003 to the present. (what track is still visible today etc)
 
Could you please forward this email on to fellow Moreton mill enthusiasts (and encourage them to send it on) so the full story may be told, due acknowledgement will be made of those who contribute and a copy will be forwarded to them of the finished work.
 
My email address is gonzo4419@...   Subject to be headed Moreton mill
 
It would really be appreciated if we can get this info together before it is lost forever.
 
Thanks kindly
 
David Kirkland (gonzo)

Hello all,

A rather nice video of a cabride in the 2ft 6in gauge Beyer Garratt G42 loco between Belgrave and Emerald on the Puffing Billy Railway can be found on Youtube here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADM3Ob5IfBc

The video was taken by Daniel Hancock on 31 December 2006, and he recently uploaded it to Youtube.

The Moyhu Nu bodies are now located in the old council depot at Moyhu - behind the general store, they are hard to spot being at the back behind some mounds of dirt etc. As far as I know, no work has been done on them.

John Cleverdon <johnc@...>
 

Hello all,
Those of you who like thew high-resolution photos on NearMap but are
wondering how to save the photos (and not want to do it as a lot of
small tiles) may be interested in the following program.
HyperTiles is a free (approx 14MB) program from NearMap that can be
downloaded at: http://www.nearmap.com/downloads/default/

It is easy to setup and use.

Be aware - you can easily create images of a few MB or more in size.
