Victorian Railways N class 2-8-2

An example of the 83-member class is seen here with a goods train at Bendigo station, with its impressive semaphore signal gantries, in 1964.

"The N class was a branch line steam locomotive that ran on Victorian Railways from 1925 to 1966. A development of the successful K class 2-8-0, it was the first VR locomotive class designed for possible conversion from 5 ft 3 in (1,600 mm) to 4 ft 81⁄2 in (1,435 mm) standard gauge."
