If you haven’t been recently please make an effort to come in and view the new presentation. Mondays to Saturdays from 11:00am to 2:pm – $2 entry
  • We have had an offer from one of our members to photograph our railway collection of artefacts to be put on a database and consolidate evidence of the many valued items that we have on display. Donna Nicholl who has professional camera equipment and who is herself trained will commence this work in the near future. Thank you so much for your help and assistance

On our behalf, they open to the public on the first Saturday of each month
