steam loco on the Carrara marble quarry line, Italy


This standard gauge railway was opened in 1876 and reached a maximum extent of 33 km. The maximum gradient was 5.8%. It was predominately steam worked until the last few years and lasted to 1964 when it was replaced by road transport.  Many of the civil engineering works that were built for the the railway still exist today, some of which are used by the road
