Railway Luncheon Club – LAPSTONE ZIG-ZAG Site Outing

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 intercity 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. This tour will be led by Neville Pollard, and will be restricted to 45 people.

  • Note that train travel to and from Emu Plains Station and lunch at O’Donoghues are NOT included in the tour cost and are your own responsibility.
  • Be sure to wear suitable clothing and footwear as there will be considerable walking and stair climbing on this outing in winter weather.
  • Book early as we are limited to 45 participants
