Just a few M/MA class, and one or two Abt, in this group. I never really got to see any Tasmanian steam, at least to photograph. One of my earliest memories, however, was of a visit to the Apple Isle during the early 50s. I was perhaps 5 years old at the time. I vividly remember seeing a Tasmanian steam loco on these incredibly narrow tracks (I was brought up in Victoria and its 5'3" gauge, don't forget), running light engine, tender first. It was perhaps an M class, although it was quite dirty and not at all like the following photographs. It is reported that I exclaimed excitedly "train going backsa"!
See Stuart Dix's RailTas page on the M/MA Class for more information.
