Just being facetious - buggered if I can see anything on the map - probably looking in the wrong place. Smile

They are being stored in a transport yard.  The owner of the yard got the contract to get them out of where they were (bass station or somewhere from memory) as they were purchased at a clearing sale and is storing them while the new owner sorts out where they want to run them.  At which point they will be reloaded and moved to their new home

This was written up in Light Railways 225 (June 2012). The locomotives were reported as the Walkers 0-6-0DH from Mourilyan Bulk Sugar Terminal and the Commonwealth Engineering 4wDH built for Commonwealth Department of Supply at St Marys NSW that subsequently worked at Fairymead Sugar Mill. There is also two carriages from the former Mulgrave Rambler. Also on the site are several bogie flat wagons, assorted bogies and a quantity of rail.  Latest reports are that nothing much has changed, other than deterioration from the elements.

They were trucked in, and would be trucked out - eventually.

Here is the companies old website http://beamish.beamishheavyhaulage.com.au.  If you click on enter then photo Album there are pictures of the trains and trams they have moved over the years.

The current owners father was heavily involved with the Melbourne Steam Traction Engine club and their original club display was held on Beamish's grounds to the west of the old service station (Now a water/tank place I think) between there and the creek where the other businesses are now. I am not sure whether the Beamish's sold that land off or leased it to the businesses.  For a long time you were not allowed to build on it - I remember the land being flooded a couple of times in the 1970's
