The well-illustrated lead article describes an historically significant Fowler six-coupled locomotive of unusual appearance which worked on sugar tramways at Childers, Queensland, and later in northern New South Wales. Apart from technical details of the locomotive, it also includes much background material on Childers sugar mill, which was one of the earliest big sugar mills to close – in 1932.
