Good shot. Apart from the Tait, it looks like a "J" shunting
the IA wagons of briquettes.
I used to live in Nth Carlton and after school,in early 60s
there was a goods on the Inner Circle that went
to Nth Fitzroy and sometimes to the Fitzroy briquette siding
that was about 1/2 mile long.
This train was always steam,K,N,J, A2 and maybe a D3.
It went over 3 Tramway level crossings.
I chased it on my bike. A good after school entertainment.
Im spewing about the lost photos I didnt take.

Cheers, Mick.
