CSRM's circular 'tourist' loop and separate loco shed line was directly inspired by the Australian Sugar Cane Railway, an operating museum, in Bundaberg's Botanical Gardens.
The Illawarra Light Railway Museum Society operation at Albion Park, NSW has a similar circular operation, but lacks the direct involvement of the sugar mills, as does the Australian Narrow Gauge Railway Museum, located on the ex-QR branch line that ran through Woodford.
