The Bathurst Rail Museum has recorded 10,000 visitors through its doors since the facility opened in February.
It is a magical milestone for the museum which has come in just six months despite a rocky start for the facility.
The facility was closed to the public on March 23 in line with state and federal COVID-19 guidelines and remained shut until June 5.
Mayor Bobby Bourke congratulated Renee and her son Finlay who saw the visitation tally click over to 10,000.
"This is a wonderful milestone to achieve in such a short time, especially given the museum was closed to the public one month after it opened," he said.
"It demonstrates that the Bathurst Rail Museum is a world class facility."
Patrons can now again relax in style with a snack or a drink from the Refreshment Room cafe in the museum's historic rail carriage that was recently reopened.
However, due to social distancing requirements, the capacity of the carriage is nine persons.
