STATEMENT FROM THE BOARD OF RICHMOND VALE RAILWAY MUSEUM

The Board wishes to thank emergency services for their efforts in fighting the Richmond Vale fire, which has caused significant damage to the museum collection despite their work. The museum site is now off-limits and under the control of Fire and Rescue NSW, due to the presence of hazardous materials, and will not reopen until that control is relinquished. Museum members and members of the public are advised that security has been posted at the museum’s access road to control admission, and that police will be patrolling the area. Please stay away.

THE REBUILDING RICHI APPEAL

Richmond Vale Railway Museum is delighted to announce the launch of the Rebuilding Richi Appeal. Our aim is to restore operation as quickly as possible at the museum site following the devastating September 13th bushfire.

The Appeal is to have three prongs:

· Fundraising events – the recently-announced trivia night in Kurri Kurri is the first of these.

· Fundraising competitions – Watch this space for the detailed announcement of the first of these, which will be launched later this week.

· Online fundraising – Today we launch the online Rebuilding Richi Appeal.

If you are a supporter, and unable to participate in an event or competition, an online donation is the way in which you can help. The Museum plans a staged return to rail operations, with the reinstatement of the Mulbring Road branch being the initial priority. Work on the main line to Pelaw Main will follow, including the repairs to the Number 1 Bridge. To achieve this, hundreds of sleepers must be replaced. This is where you can help. Every $150 donated allows us to lay another sleeper. Every donation helps us get closer to full reopening and operation.
