Lautoka and Rarawai Friday 11 September 2014

Just time to investigate a few more things before leaving for home.

Two significant things:
1. Lautoka Mill has a small Chinese tamping machine
2. The Fowler locomotive that was formerly in a park in Ba has been moved to a new museum. It hasn't officially opened yet, but it ids just visible inside.

Tonight I'm off to Nauru for a short work trip. I believe there's not much left to see there but I'll let you know when I get back in a few days.

LATE CORRECTION - Unfortunately Nauru Airlines couldn't provide a serviceable aircraft and the fight was cancelled. I hope to get over there in a few weeks time.
