Macknade Mill No.1
Hudswell Clarke b/n 1653 of 1934
This locomotive was built by Hudswell, Clarke & Co. Ltd of Leeds, England as their Builder's No.1653 of 1934 to a 0-6-0 tender design that was popular with Australian sugar interests. It operated at the Macknade Mill near Ingham, where it was No.1 on their locomotive roster. a
I understand this locomotive is now privately owned and kept at Jungara, near Cairns.
Contributions of a photograph or further information for this loco would be welcome!
