Fordson Rail Tractor now at the
Illawarra Light Railway Museum (ex-Fairymead Mill #123).
see it at

Thank you John.

That machine is really interesting from a model maker's point of view.
It is probably the easiest bush tractor of all to represent, since a
cheap,
highly detailed Fordson Major tractor is available from Universal
Hobbies
in 1/16 scale, for which standard 45mm track is a close approximation to

two foot gauge.

So I would be really delighted to know more about it.

Yes certainly in Erica as well, at the sports ground that occupies the site of the old narrow gauge station. Stopover on your way up to Walhalla, and buy your egg & bacon sandwich at the general store...

Cheers

Hi all,

John is correct. Its Marysville, not Warburton.
