March 2018

Rail Museum reopens after six week break!

See the transformation that has come over the forecourt between the century old roundhouse and the turntable, with a successful project skilfully carried out by contractors Rhomberg Rail. This major upgrade is a welcome improvement to the safety level of visitors and volunteers alike and adds to the overall Museum experience.

Ancient and well-worn rails, bitumen and soil were removed from this much used area and replaced with a slip resistant surface around the new tracks. New plumbing was laid to ensure more efficient flow of rainwater before levels were adjusted to bring the surrounds up to rail height, making transition a much smoother experience, especially for children and older visitors.

The “Valley Heights Mixed”, with its 19th century steam engine and carriage, makes a welcome return at 10am. Twenty minute rides throughout the day are included in general admission fees. Be there!
