Just an old postcard of the Mapleton Tramway. It’s hard to estimate the exact location, but looks like it is the regular “up” tram preparing to leave Nambour. Visible behind “Dulong” are the passenger & brake van and the covered wagon. The guard is just visible in his compartment of he brake van.
It ran every day except Sunday … it departed just after lunch and took two and a half hours to get from Nambour up to Mapleton. In it’s up service, it carried passengers, supplies, goods, mail and sawn timber. The tram was stabled up in Mapleton overnight and in the morning it would come down to Nambour with return passengers, mail, logs, sugar cane and if it was in season, oranges.
