Historical Background / Description: 

During the Bauxite boom, locomotives (or trains as they are commonly known as) used to transport bauxite ore throughout each of the bauxite mines, which were connected by railway to the Bauxite Plant. The use of locomotives or trains were discontinued and replaced by large trucks to transport the bauxite ores. Today, there are traces of both railways and locomotives in Mackenzie ward, primarily in Watooka on Casuarina Drive.
