This photo I took in 1971 of the Mc Cormick Deering rail tractor at Bells Camp (the end of the line)26 miles from Erica,a thriving timber industry operated from the town.The three foot gauge tramway and a few others in the area , had their timber unloaded on to a two foot six inch narrow gauge(government owned )railway.This is the condition I found the rail tractor in,it had been sitting there from 1950 to 1971.There were stories of a lost locos in the bush,this one of them,the steam loco I believe I know where it is but Government regulation prevent me from recovering it........Peter.
