Here is a photo that Carol Haberle took 21 March 2006 at Tullah featuring a classic steam train called Wee Georgie Wood. It represents a bygone era of steam trains in Tasmania. Today it operates as a tourist attraction in Tullah on a two foot narrow gauge over 1.9 km. There is an interesting article on Wikipedia about the history of Wee Georgie Wood. I hope your readers enjoy this photo and the story behind the steam train ~ Greg Hale
Tullah Tasmania: Wee Georgie Wood
Besides the Wikipedia article Greg mentions, the Wee Georgie Wood tourist attraction in Tullah has a website and Facebook page (find details in links below). Carol also wrote about Wee Georgie Wood for Think Tasmania a little over four years ago in September 2012, when she covered Tullah and the west coast wilderness region of Tasmania for readers.
Wee Georgie Wood Heritage Steam Railway is located via Murchison Highway, Tullah. The steam train travels through the mountainous temperate rainforest in Tasmania’s west coast region. Contact the organisers online for details or follow Wee Georgie Wood on Facebook.
Greg Hale is curating this series for Think Tasmania, featuring a monthly photo taken by Carol Haberle. Greg was a colleague, photography mentor and friend of Carol’s and we’re honoured to continue sharing her great work with readers.
