Portfolio of Queensland Railways - Urangan

Urangan, at the southern extent of Hervey Bay, was a reasonably important port for the export of bagged raw sugar. The sugar was milled from sugar cane in Maryborough. This local mixed goods and passenger train from Maryborough, possibly on a weekend, was photographed around 1965, by Ivor Thurlow. The line ran in a northerly direction here, straight on to the Urangan pier, which was about 1km long, and received shipping from all over the world.

The engine on these trains was invariably a PB15 class.
