Extra wide narrow gauge
« on: June 13, 2021, 09:43:52 AM »
And you think we have problems? The 1600 mm (5'2") gauge Daylesford Spa Railway in Victoria, Australia, was victim of heavy rains and strong winds last week. More than 400 (!) trees have fallen across their line, with many others damaged and leaning that will also have to be felled before operations can re-open.

A good reason to support building the sawmill / shinglemill complex at TOM.
