The Herbert River district, Queensland 10 October 2014

A trip to Ingham with David Mewes and Ian Stocks to launch our new book 'Salute to the Hudswells'

The launch will take place tomorrow in connection with the centenary celebrations of Hudswell Clarke 0-6-0 HOMEBUSH during the annual Maraka Festival.

On arriving in Ingham, there was a chance to look for some cane trains at Victoria and Macknade Mills.

Victoria Mill's 40-tonne Walkers B-B DH VICTORIA picking up fulls at Toobanna

VICTORIA's remotely controlled brake wagons at the rear of the train
Mackande Mill's EM Baldwin B-B DH 19 waiting to return to the mill from the Central line

Macknade loco shed - one Clyde DHI and two Clyde HG-3R 0-6-0DH locos

From this side the Macknade shed looks little changed from steam days - with EM Baldwin 0-6-0DH HOBART and bogie Baldwin 20

At Victoria Mill, Clyde CENTENARY is the empty shunter
