Re: Ida Bay Railway

Thanks Frank

I'd certainly agree that there's been very mixed success... while I understand that the roads have been improved somewhat since my visit, I assume that getting there has always been something of a problem. It's also far enough from Hobart that travel times would be longer than desirable for many potential volunteers. Too bad because it's such a delightful operation.

For readers who are not familiar with the operation: http://idabayrailway.com.au/

I've got a couple of photos on-line, including one of the Beck Rail Car that was there when I visited: http://www.zelmeroz.com/ngrail/ngrailway/idabay.htm
Suspect that I need to update the site with current information and more of my photos but at least the link to their web site still works.
:-)

Best wishes, Lynn

Re: Ida Bay Railway

Scott Clennett
 

Hello All,

The Ida Bay "Railway" was built from c1922 to carry limestone from quaries in the hinterland east of Southport down-grade to Ida Bay, in the Lune River estuary area. It had an initial length of about 8.6 km. The limestone was then transported by vessels to the works at Electrona of what was originally the Hydro Electric Power and Metalurgical Company, later the Australian Commonwealth Carbide Co., and locally known as the Carbide Company. It had no connection with the Zinc Works. Electrona is just north of the township of Snug, on North West Bay at the northern end of the D'entrecasteaux Channel. It was used there in the manufacture of calcium carbide, a product which, when exposed to water, generates acetylene gas, potentially explosively. The other main ingredient in the process was carbon, in the form of anthracitic coal, imported from various sources over the years, including, it was hoped for a time, from the Catamaran coal workings at Recherche Bay, not far south of Lune River. In later years, I understand, the anthracite was imported from South Africa. Acetylene gas was used for lighting, in brazing and welding, and in flame cutting steel and other metals, amongst other things. The process required large amounts of electricity, and was directly linked with the early development of Tasmania's hydro-electric schemes, particularly at Waddamana. It was somewhat ironic that acelylene has been largely superceded by electricity.
The railway was originally built to overcome something of a confrontation between the Metalurgical Company and the Huon Timber Company, which withdrew access to its tramway system.
In the 1940s, the Ida Bay Railway was extended by about 6 km to the Deep Hole, on the shores of Southport itself, where there was a much more satisfactory berth. With this extension, the last 500 metres or so leading to Ida Bay itself was abandoned, and the total length of the truncated line became about 13.8 km. With the closure of the Carbide Works, the section of the line west of the main south road leading to Recherche, essentially from the Lune River village, was closed. In time, the Tasmanian government purchased the line with a mind to the (generally flat) section from Lune River to the Deep Hole being leased out for the operation of a tourist railway. A succession of operators failed to make a go of it, at times amid controversy. About four or five years ago, the lease was taken on by Meg Thornton, and she seems to be having rather more success, running a (nominal) four-trip-a-day timetable for a 1 3/4 hour trip, at least when there is demand.

For those interested, it is proposed that the upcoming LRRSA tour through the Tasmanian Southern Forests will linclude a return trip on this railway, probably on Sunday 20 February 2011. I have spoken to Meg about this, and she is very keen.
All the more reason to come!

Re: Ida Bay Railway

Chris Stratton
 

I visited on 10th June 1993 and was the only passenger. I had rung from
Hobart the previous day to ensure the train would be running but when I
arrived at Lune River there was no train crew. Not too much later the crew
arrived and said they were heading down the end of the line to drop off some
gear and I was welcome to ride along. Our loco had a timber tram body built
on a Malcolm Moore chassis, powered by an Isuzu diesel, and with "Teddy Bear
No 2" painted on the front. We had two carriages, one large open carriage
and a smaller one which looked like a guard's van. I rode in the loco with
the crew and was treated to personalised photo stops, including where I
hiked up a hill to take video of the train circling the base of the hill. I
had to run after the train as when they applied the brakes it didn't stop
and just kept sliding along the wet rails. Also at Lune River were two
original Malcolm Moore locos, one with "IBR No1" painted on the door, I
didn't find a number on the other.

Chris

Subject: [LRRSA] Ida Bay Railway


I recently visited Ida Bay and rode the train with its Malcolm Moore,
Isusu
engined, locomotive and was very impressed.

This line originally conveyed limestone from a quarry to a jetty on Ida
Bay and
has been well documented in Light Railways of Autumn 1971 and February
and August of 2001

One of the more interesting historial aspects of the railway was the
braking
system used on the limestone wagons

These were four wheel flat wagons and carried a removable box to contain
the limestone. Braking was effected by "wooden brake blocks which
dropped onto the wheels after being activated by the bunching of couplings
and released when the strain was taken up" (Light Railways February 2001)

There a couple of very derelict wagons near the terminus at Lune River and
the brakes look very simple in operation and pretty robust

The sad part is that the wagons are in a very poor condition and are mixed
up
with what will probably become scrap timber and metal

This braking system is at least uncommon and may well be unique and
examples would seem worthy of preservation

I think it would be a great project for some Tasmanian enthusiasts to
arrange
with the operators to take on the restoration and refurbishment of a
couple
of wagons that are fitted with this brakes and for them to be available
for
viewing at the depot

I understand the railway is owned by the Tasmanian Government so perhaps
some heritage grant money could be made available?
