Redcliffs Light Railway

Mike McCarthy will tell the story of the 2 ft gauge Red Cliffs light railway that served the Red Cliffs pumping station in northern Victoria from 1924 to 1954. The line was 5.3 km long and carried briquettes and coal to the pumping station. A small Kerr Stuart steam locomotive and several Malcolm Moore tractors were used on the line.
