The weekend saw the official return of railmotor traffic to Healesville with Minister Tim Holding on Sunday officially cutting the ribbon on the RM service.
The morning saw 22RM being given the final spruce up, ready for all the pics. A members meeting was held in the morning, during which ATHRA chairman Peter Silva Presented the YVR with a plaque.
This was for the award won last year for the Restoration of Passenger rolling stock (Walker 22RM). Within 3hrs this plaque had taken pride of place on the wall above the drinks fountain, clearly visible to all who enter her...... Also covered in the meeting was the future directions of the YVR and details of some of the assistance that is being provided to achieve this, details of which will come out over time.
For the ceremony, the YVR had a large number of invited guests, from Ministers/MP's from state government, to local councilers ,to all the supporters the railway. Special guests included the daughter of the driver who drove the final service from Healesville when the line was closed, Also a former VR driver who spent many years driving 22RM between Ballarat and Ballan, and a lady who spent many years riding 22RM to/from school also between Ballarat and Ballan
22RM ran the day's trips without any fuss, looking great with the headboards at each end. Sunday it was all back to normal, with everything quiet at Healesville, just the head boards remaining...... (They'll remain on for a month or so to mark the event.)
