Light Railways 270 was delivered to the Post Office on Friday morning, so should be dropping into letterboxes early this week. It looks like another cracking issue, highlighted by a lengthy article discussing the gunpowder tramways of Melbourne. Contents are:
- Sleeping on a volcano - The gunpowder magazines of Melbourne and their tramways(Vic)
- Rockhampton Harbour Board locomotive (QLD)
- Rubicon pioneer’s picnic (Vic)
- Industrial Railway News - 14 items from around Australia and Fiji
- Field Reports - The Port Kembla No.2 Colliery (NSW); Sir John Franklin incline, Gooleys Creek (Vic)
- Heritage & Tourist News - 12 items from Australia
- Back cover photos: G42 working on the Beech Forest narrow gauge branch (Vic)
