Back on Track

It was announced earlier that the Friends of Australiana Pioneer Village were to be the major recipient of the profits of this year’s show. At a recent meeting between representatives of both organisations it was agreed that the donation should be directed to a specific project. The nominated project was the restoration of the railway. The train was a popular attraction in the past and restoration to operation would be a welcome event.

This is a large project that will require a lot of time and money but it is hoped that the show will get the project off to a great start. We are excited to be involved.

The Friends of the Village will have a stand at the show and will be able to answer any questions you may have on the village and the railway. There some photos of the Village including an aerial show showing the railway here. (Unfortunately the building used as the station is mislabelled as Kurrajong Railway Station when it is in fact the former Kurrajong Goods shed.)
