    In the mid nineties the then operator had advantage of the Restored Hunslett steam engine on loan from Don River Railway.
    Originally the Hunslett was built in the UK specifically for the Carbide Co. operating the Ida Bay Quarry and then carting the high quality limestone down to the Deep Hole Jetty where it was transported by boats to Electrons near Snug
    The Hinslett is now at Sheffield Steam again being restored
    In this picture the engines were being prepared for a filming session with all locos on the line at the same time.
