About this Item: Eveleigh Press, Matraville, NSW Australia, 2010. Soft Cover. Condition: New. No Jacket. First Edition. 60 pages profusely illustrated colour photos - Australia's sugar giant, CSR, had a far-flung outpost in the blue Pacific, where it built over 400km of cane tramway and ran several large mills. CSR's cane railway on Fiji survives today on the islands of Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, under new ownership. It provides a fascinating window onto the Australian cane tramway of the 1960s, set in a tropical paradise. Motive power is mainly diesel-hydraulic 0-6-0s from Clyde Engineering in Sydney and operating practices mirror those of Queensland four decades ago. This all-colour album showcases the Clyde diesels amongst the cane fields and forests of Fiji between 2005 and 2009. Rail transport in Fiji exists to move cut sugar cane to crushing mills. There used to be two horse-drawn street tramway systems, some other passenger systems, an underground mine system and some tramways on construction projects. Tramways have been used to transport sugar cane from the fields to the mill since 1876 when a 2.4-kilometre (1.5 mi) horse tramway was constructed on the Selia Levu estate on the island of Taveuni. The Holmhurst Mill on Tavenui had tramways from 1882 of 762 mm (2 ft 6 in) gauge. A tramway was also built on Mago Island. Most cane tramways were of 610 mm (2 ft) gauge, on the main islands of Viti Levu and Vanua Levu. Steam engines were used, later replaced with diesel engines. Most of the mills and tramways were built by the Colonial Sugar Refining Company (CSR), an Australian-owned company, and transferred to the Fiji Sugar Corporation in 1973, when CSR withdrew from Fiji.Many lines were on road reserve provided by the government, and combined road-rail bridges were common. Some passenger services were provided, such as the famous Free Train from 1915, with one or two trains a week from Lautoka to Kavanagasau and Rarawai on the Rarawai - Kavanagasau Light Railway. In 1988 there were 645 kilometres (401 mi) of permanent cane railway in Fiji, for the Lautoka and Rarawai, and Penang mills on Viti Levu, and the Labasa Mill on Vanua Levu.
