Very nice work!

In my younger days I was a avid bushwalker and spent many days exploring the Blue Mountains and environs
(crowie country) anyway I found my way into the Wolgan Valley where kerosene shale had been mined.
To get the shale out of the rugged mountains they built a entire railway system and used what was called Shay locos, they were gear driven bogies capable of very tight turns and pitches well above the standard 1:40 for a “normal Railway” incline

The locos unfortunately were all cut up for scrap amd the railway lines ended up in Tobruk as defences.

Here is a picture of one of the locos, I thought it may be of interest.

Enjoy
