After the business session and interval, Milang Railway Museum Secretary Peter Lucas will present an illustrated talk.

“Light railways are short, single purpose railways which perform a transportation task at a single location. South Australia once had about seven hundred light railways spread throughout the State; now only eight remain. Those light railways varied from properly engineered routes to the outright quirky. The presentation will review the rolling stock and purposes of the State’s light railways and will include videos of NRM locomotives at work” he said.
