New Zealand Logging Locomotives (TrainWeb.org/loggingz) This site deals with the locomotives, other than New Zealand designed geared locos (refer
New Zealand Geared Locomotives), that were used on the bush tramways in New Zealand. There are
some geared engines, such as the Climax and Heisler, but the majority were mainly rod engines and
these were sourced both from overseas and as cast-offs from the national railway system.
New Zealand Rail Maps (TrainWeb.org/nzrailmaps) This site maps the national public railway network of New Zealand. These are the lines which

Down Under Trains by Jim Nowell (TrainWeb.org/vrt/JimNowell) Twelve PRS members enjoyed riding six diesel/two steam trains and one dinner tram in Australia
on Mountain Outin's (led by Rolland Graham) August/September trip to the land where the moon looks
upside down. This article relates my experiences on the two most unique railways which were the
new line from Darwin to Alice Springs, the GHAN, and the SAVANNAHLANDER from Mt. Surprise to
Cairns as well as the best dinner train Julie & I have had the pleasure of riding -
