Close Wayne, but no cigar – not even a tin of Vegemite.     sad smiley

The tractor is probably a 2-4=4-0 simple non-articulated duplex (I'm using "=" here, as I have no idea how La+Messina would distinguish a duplex from an articulated or a Garrett.  I also have no idea how to describe the trailing flat on which the logs are loaded, as it's apparently missing it's front truck and is resting on the rear of the loco's frame.  OTOH, the trailer's not an engine anyway, so the Whyte loco classification system probably shouldn't be applied — unless the whole contraption is a wood-burner and the logs are its fuel.  Then maybe it's a 2-4=4-0+0-8-0T . . .     spinning smiley sticking its tongue out
