Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
Cowra's Lachlan Valley Railway celebrated NSW rail's 150th anniversary in style over the October long weekend.
Sunshine, warm temperatures and plenty of enthusiastic passengers proved to be a winning combination for the local rail group, which offered train journeys to a variety of destinations.
These included Noonbinna, Koorawatha, Wattamondara, Westville and Woodstock along with a highly successful Saturday night dinner trip to Kingsvale, located about 15 kilometres south of Young.
A highlight of the weekend was the display of recently restored steam locomotive 3237.
Soon to be officially named Lachlan, 3237 is a member of the famous P class express passenger locomotives that were once used throughout NSW.
Introduced in 1893, the locomotive travelled over 3.5 million kilometres in regular service before being retired in November 1971.
She was subsequently purchased by the LVR with about a third of the funds raised by donations from Cowra residents.
Fully restored 3237 was on display at Cowra station during the weekend and made a number of impressive demonstration runs, often paralleling departing LVR passenger workings.
The LVR has an enviable reputation for the variety and quality of its heritage rail activities.
The October long weekend's running further added to this reputation and gave enthusiasts a hint of what is to come now that 3237 has returned to service.
It truly was a great birthday commemoration for rail's 150th anniversary.
