Saturday 6 April – Redwater Creek & Don River

We visited the 2ft gauge Redwater Creek Steam Railway at Sheffield. There is a short 1km line on the course of an old Government Railway branch line. The sole locomotive is a 1907 Krauss and there are some nice passenger vehicles.

A quick visit to the 3ft 6in gauge Don River Railway was also achieved. Passenger services were being worked by a twin Waddingtons/Drewry railcar unit.

 A tour of the workshops provided much of interest
