    Big Lizzie

    Here is an old ABC Landline presentation on Big Lizzie which might be of interest to some.
    She had such incredible pulling power for a small engine, not to mention a decent fuel capacity/range.

    Cheers, Mick.

    Big Lizzie was certainly ahead of her time and well ahead of the civil works required for her to reach her intended career domain, of Broken Hill.
    Bigbjorn should be along soon. He was Frank Bottrill's alumni.
    If you don't like trucks, stop buying stuff.

    I have a book somewhere on Big Lizzie I inherited from the father-in-law.

    I've stopped at Red Cliffs a few times to look & take pictures.
