TODAY marks 40 years since Tasmania’s express passenger train, Tasman Limited, stopped its run through the state.
Tasman Limited operated between Hobart and Wynyard from 1954 to 1978.
Today at Don River Railway, rail enthusiasts will be marking the milestone occasion by running their version of the Tasman Limited all day departing Don Village for Coles Beach and return.
The group will be using the Don River Railway, Launceston-built Y-class diesel locomotive, which will haul four carriages.
The public is invited to attend, with trips in operation this afternoon until 3pm.
