It's a picture of the 610 mm gauge Hudswell Clarke 0-6-0 steam locomotive 'Homebush' used by the Colonial Sugar Refining Company at their sugar mills in Queensland, Australia. There are a number of these locos in preservation, here's another:

Love the looks of that Bally Hooley and its a wood burner. Must be a really small set of wheels as you can't even see them.

Most of these locos are coal or oil firing, but I think the wood is used for starting the fire.

One source I've found, admittedly not referring to these specific individual locos, says that:

"Originally the locomotives did not have tenders but after a period in use they were provided to carry bagasse (crushed residues of the cane) as fuel for the boiler."

I haven't found any models of Sugar Cane Railway steamers yet, but while searching I did stumble across these, which might be of passing interest to Muddy.

Well thats a very efficient and cost saving way to get rid of waste and power the engine.

We're getting a little bit off topic in my opinion.
But most of Australian sugar cane steam locomotives used mostly coal or oil, never crushed sugar cane.

I appreciated the conversations(I really do), but I wanted to see if the model railway people on this forum to see if there's any models on this locomotive.
