Australian Standard Garratt 3ft 6in gauge on Pieman River Bridge West Coast Tasmania in February 1963 users.nex.net.au/~reidgck/pieman-r.jpg . Motor vehicles were carried on this railway before the highway was completed soon after this photo was taken. These 4-8-2+2-8-4 locomotives were built during World War II in Australia and served in Queensland, Western Australia, South Australia and Tasmania -- where they were most successful. One unit worked on a private limestone quarry line at Geelong Victoria. This one was kept longer than the others and is consequently the only survivor, and presently on display at the Railway museum, Williamstown Victoria. As a matter of interest, the driving wheels on the ASGs, is of the same pattern and diameter as on the Western Australian 'S' class locos which entered service about the same period in the 1940s.
