Yes the engine is a shed at Chillagoe I know the owner
Chillagoe a small mining town west of Mareeba
I will be at Mareeba on Thursday for a machinery sale and I think the engine owner will be there

Hi Ian.
Could you let him know that a young (ish,  I'm 33) blacksmith/ steam enthusiast from gordonvale would like to meet him?
It is the closest traction engine to here, and I would love to get involved in all things traction engine!
Cheers, woody.
good luck at the sale!

It is a nice town. Plenty of water, and it keeps me employed. I drive a sugar cane train for the crushing season.

It does sound lovely but also sounded as if he has lost his oil can and is squeaking a lot.
