ARHS Railway Luncheon Club
LAPSTONE ZIG-ZAG Site Outing

Wednesday 20 June 2018

The Railway Luncheon Club invites members and guests to explore some of the archaeological remains of the Lapstone Zig Zag at the foot of the Blue Mountains, on Wednesday 20th June 2018. Opened with the line to Weatherboard (now Wentworth Falls) in 1867, this is probably the first example of a Zig Zag railway in NSW and carried trains to and from the west until it was replaced by the notorious Glenbrook Tunnel in 1892. Our chartered coach will leave Emu Plains Station after the arrival of the inter city service which leaves Central at 9.18am and due at Emu Plains 10.09am. After our arrival at the Knapsack Viaduct Car Park, we will inspect this viaduct and then walk to the top points of the Zig Zag. We then return to the coach for the trip back to O'Donoghue's Hotel at Emu Plains for lunch.
