Chris,
Many thanks for that. I spent the weekend at a monastery at Galong, attending a most valuable series of workshops on museum management run by Museums Australia for small volunteer-run organisations. Something of a nightmare getting there and back by train!

Re: Puffing Billy Spit Roast [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]

Frank Stamford
 

Well the Puffing Billy Spit Roast has now run. Actually it was the "1920s Gembrook Mixed Train" and it ran on Sunday 3 October with about 85 passengers, and was fully booked.

On the same day the Puffing Billy Railway had an open day with workshops at Belgrave and Emerald open to the public, the museum at Menzies Creek open with a number of exhibits operating, Peckett locomotive "Sir John Grice" in steam at Emerald, rebuilt Couillet locomotive 861 in steam at Menzies Creek, diesel-mechanical locomotive D21 in growl at Menzies Creek, diesel-hydraulic locomotives DH5 and DH31 growling in various places, and three NA locomotives beautifying the countryside.

Martin Bennett has placed 83 high-quality photographs taken on the day on this website:

http://martin-bennet.fotopic.net/c1903605.html

and I have 18 photographs on my website here:

http://members.ozemail.com.au/~telica/Puffing_Billy_Gembrook%201920s%20mixed%20train.html

In the case of the latter group of pictures, as far as possible all evidence of post-1920s technology has been eliminated! This is in keeping with the theme of the 1920s Mixed Train.

A feature of the day was the placing of the Ali Shan Shay locomotive in an excellent location on No.3 Road at Menzies Creek station, with a beatifully presented load of sawn timber behind it. This was mounted on two restoed ex-Tyers Valley Tramway timber bogies. The Menzies Creek Museum team have done a wonderful job in their presentation of these timber bogies and load.

It is quite likely the 1920s Gembrook Mixed train will run again next year.

Frank

From Railpage with some shots of rail items around Condong mill from just

Light Railways No.213 posted and minor website update

Frank Stamford
 

Light Railways No.215 was packed last Friday night and posted on Saturday. Copies should start arriving today.

With this issue is notification of two forthcoming tours. The first is in central Victoria, the second in southern Tasmania:

Wombats, Whiskey and Iron Tour - 13/14 November, to Lal Lal blast furnace, Dunnstown whiskey distillery site, Barkstead and Anderson's tramway, and Henderson's tramway at Woodburn. Staying overnight at Daylesford, with barbecue dinner and train ride provided by the Central Highlands Railway.

This will start with a book launch and dinner in Hobart on Friday evening, then visit Geeveston and points south to Cockle Creek, including a visit to the Ida Bay Railway.

Also included is the first details of the LRRSA Fiftieth Anniversary Dinner which is scheduled for Saturday night 7 May, probably followed by a visit to Walhalla on the following day. We are proposing to have a National Conference on Saturday 7 May to be attended by LRRSA office bearers and members with interests in the future directions of the LRRSA. Most of the 7 May activities are expected to be in the Belgrave area of Victoria.

A minor update of the website has also been made with details of LR215, and the latest issue of Narrow Gauge Downunder.

Re: March 2011 narrow gauge industrial trip to trip to Sichuan (China)

Roderick Smith
 

It is very tempting, but also an awkward month for me. I will be part of a major Murray River fleet voyage from the end of March into April, celebrating the centenary of PS Industry at Renmark.

Also on the tempting list for 2011: PTG Cuba (27.2-13.3), with some ng steam. www.ptg.co.uk/tours/cuba.htm

And Geoff's Trains Kenya - Zimbabwe - Botswana - South Africa, also with some ng steam (May). www.geoffs-trains.com/africa2011.html

Closer to home, Fiji is quite achievable privately.

March 2011 narrow gauge industrial trip to trip to Sichuan (China)

John Browning
 

I am forwarding to the group details of an exciting trip to China in March
next year that some may be interested in.

I have previously participated in tours that John Raby was involved in as a
tour organiser and am confident that the tour would be congenial and well
run.

I would love to go, but from my perspective at this stage, I think I will be
trying to focus on my more central interests.

However, it is definitely past one minute to midnight as far as such
opportunities allow.



To read all the details and see what can be expected, go to
http://www.users.waitrose.com/~jraby/chinatour1.html



John

Subject: March 2011 trip to Sichuan for the Jiayang (Shibanxi) and Mojiang
narrow gauge coal railways



A proposal is now on my website
http://www.users.waitrose.com/~jraby/chinatour1.html for a China ng tour.
This is only 6 months' away so I am keen to get the word out now as quickly
and as widely as possible. Please pass this on to anyone who might be
interested. The reason for the slightly last-minute decision is the progress
on a road that will link Bago to Qianwei which is due to be completed by
spring 2011. Spring 2012 might be too late!



Please let me know if you are interested. I will then keep you updated on
progress with this trip. For those who may want to stay in China for longer
than 10 days, I should be able to help suggest additional things to do after
the trip either using Zebedee as your guide in Sichuan or with other guides
in other parts of China. Depending on my own plans prior to this tour, I may
not have much time left on a one month China visa to be able to stay long
beyond the end of the tour but that could change. I am currently thinking of
celebrating my 60th in Bago for around 2 weeks with my wife before the trip
proposed below.



Best wishes

Interesting reading.

Incidently, Victoria Mill have regulatory accreditation for the
Homebush Steam Train component only - thats an example where two forms
can co-exist, and that operation continues successfully with services
a couple of times each year. So its not accredited for the Sugar Cane
Operation, just the passenger operation. One may think if regulations
was so burdensome, the passenger operation would be hived off?

Is the regulatory model so much of a burden that an opportunity to put
some otherwise road freight back onto rail willing to be lost?

What is the actual cost, has it been costed? The 2010Transport (Rail
Safety) Regulation reveals the fees section 46

State Mine Ds

Brad Peadon PdOB <alcogoodwin@...>
 

Guys,
        Has anyone been up to State Mine of late?
  I am wondering about the former BHP Ds there. Are they all operational and what livery each wears nowdays?
 
  While on the topic, is the privately owned D7 in Canberra in an operational condition and still yellow?
 
Many thanks
Brad
