Apologies for the very belated THANK YOU from all at the (ARHS) Australian Railway Historical Society for your assistance in making the steam train visit to Landsborough on 04 Nov 2006 such a great success - despite the torrential rain !
The train to Glasshouse Mountains and back to Landsborough was nearly full and the Palmwoods train was 100% sold. This enabled the ARHS to make a small profit which is put towards the operating of the Society railway and museum at Rosewood.
The ARHS Charter is to keep operating steam trains - on the QR main line and at the Society's railway at Rosewood for people to experience our rail heritage.
In fact 2007 marks 50 years of the ARHS operating rail tours
The great news is that the ARHS will be bringing a steam train to the Sunshine Coast on
Saturday 31 March 2007
The train will bring visitors from Brisbane who can do a variety of options whilst here including a visit to the Maroochy Botanic Gardens and a cruise from Caloundra.
For the Sunshine Coast residents we will be operating two shuttles …..
1/ Palmwoods / NAMBOUR / Yandina / NAMBOUR / Palmwoods
2/ Palmwoods / Yandina / Palmwoods
Timings will be available later when "time slots" are given to the ARHS by QR.
