The following is a posting on behalf of the ARHS Locomotive Branch, who are looking for ongoing support for their projects.
As part of any restoration effort is the need to generate $ to fund the ongoing restorations.
On Saturday 20 February, the ARHS has arranged for interested persons to travel in a first class lounge car for a ride from Central to Kandos and return.
The trip is to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the 48 class, but the opportunity is being taken for those interested in supporting the ARHS restoration efforts to have a good day out, as well as assist in fund raising for the ARHS locomotive branch!
Preliminary timetable is to depart Central at 7:30am, Arrive Kandos at 1:30pm, Depart Kandos 3:25pm, arrive back into Central at 8:45pm.
Tickets are $195 for a ticket in the first class lounge car, which includes a two-course lunch at the Kandos Pub.
Bookings can be made through the ARHS-ACT front office (02) 6284 2790 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for all the continued support to the ARHS Loco branch!
