Moe - Walhalla line
This siding had a junction with the 2' 6" gauge Forests Commission (Govt. Dept) timber tramway into the Tyers valley. Among other engines the Forests Commission used a Climax geared locomotive. This has been restored and is now on the Puffing Billy Railway. (See below.)
Here is a Link to an article on the Tyers Valley tramway. See below for two photographs.

Puffing Billy has two of the locomotives that ran on the Tyres Valley line, the Climax (left) and the T.A.C.L. rail tractor. Currently the Climax's boiler has no operating certificate as it needs refurbishment. This is planned as part of the ten-year plan.
