Sometime in the early 1900s, a pair of B13 steam locomotives take a mixed train from the Atherton tableland down to the coast past the Barron Falls, a highlight on what is now the route of the Cairns to Kuranda scenic tourist line, also used by the Savannahlander. The B13 was a 4-6-0 type of which 112 were produced between 1883 and 1895. For NZ enthusiasts the track gauge in Queensland is the same as at home.
