RN 179 - Decauville expected to depart for the UK within weeks

8th June 2006

As Sandstone Estates' No. 49 steamed through Vailima on its usual Saturday morning trip to collect bales for the main farm, the Reefsteamers 25Nc and 15F (Dave Rogers tour) came past on the 3.6" and were able to catch a glimpse of Sandstone Estates narrow gauge hard at work. It was a rare occasion for photographers to see 3.6" and narrow gauge side by side. As the Reefsteamers 25NC and 15F thundered into the distance one could here the echoes of the whistles greeting each other."
