COALFIELDS STEAM RETURNS TO RICHI

Nov 26, 2018 by

The Richmond Vale Railway Museum will host its annual Coalfields Steam event over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend.

The display will include passenger train rides on the museum’s railway line, a demonstration coal train composed of the wooden hopper wagons once so common on the coalfields and many other attractions.

“We have a variety of exhibits on show,” said Peter Meddows, the museum’s chairman.

“Visitors will be able to see stationary steam engines once used to power farm machinery, other operating vintage farm machinery, and many artefacts associated with the steam age.”

“Our ROD locomotive, dating from World War 1, which celebrated its 100th birthday a few weeks ago, can be seen on display.”

“We’ll also offer our regular family attractions such as the mini-train and the mining museum.”

Visitors can bring their own picnic lunch, or purchase food from the museum’s café and sausage sizzle.

The museum’s gates open at 9.30am on Sunday June 10 and Monday June 11.

Entry fees are $16.00 adult, $11.00 concession, $7.50 children 5 – 15, with children under 5 free.
