A point of interest -- I have a feeling that there were many "private" little railroads on private property all over the world.
There was a potter (Barry Brickell - just found him on Google as I had totally forgotten his name) in New Zealand who has built a little railway - very narrow gauge - to bring back clay from where he dug it on his property and to bring in wood for his kiln. He built most of his equipment from cast offs - but now, looks like he has updated considerably. I met him at a workshop in Denver years ago when he was still building and developing his environment. I'm sure Prue knows about this!
Again, the wonderful paths Mr. Ransome leads us on!!!
