Default Timber Mill Steam Relics

A few pics I took on a recent trip to Yungaburra Nth Queensland.
Not a steam collector, but thought some of you on this forum might be interested. The signs in the photos will hopefully explain. The big flue was blown down in a 1950s cyclone. Interesting, I think the machine that looks like a brake press is the veneer slicer. The big boiler was made in Canada.--Cheers-Neil.

No one is quite sure what the engine is, but it is possible that it is a robey tandem.
The mill stack was blown down in cyclone larry in 2006. The main mill and boiler building burned down a few years earlier, rumour has it that it was to avoid heritage listing.
