ARHS NSW Division Tours invite all members and friends to celebrate our end of year Christmas Party. This year we return to the privately owned and operated Lake Macquarie Light Railway.
A 2 foot gauge railway situated on private land on the outskirts of Toronto and is the home of two operating steam locomotives and one petrol locomotive. The feature of the celebration will be the steaming and running of two steam locomotives, No.7 and the fully restored 1908 Krauss built “JACK”, formerly used on the Goondah – Burrinjuck Railway. This locomotive was once an exhibit owned by the NSW Rail Transport Museum is now leased to the LMLR. Also DL 12 will have a run in the afternoon. Travel from Sydney on the 8.16am Intercity Service to Fassifern, due at 10.30am where you will be met by a bus to transfer you to LMLR.
