From Oberon Tarana Heritage Railway
PUT aside Saturday, October 3 to see Oberon Tarana Heritage Railway (OTHR) Inc. achieve a major milestone.
For the first time in 41 years, a passenger train will pull in to Oberon Station.
Although only a short haul from the rolling stock shed to the station, it will mark a major milestone and showcase the work that OTHR has achieved on the railway lines in the Oberon station precinct, the new station platform, rebuilt after 96 years, and the rolling stock itself.
OTHR volunteers have been in training, learning to drive the 73 Class locomotives, and they will be shunting the train to the station on the day.
The association will shortly commence refurbishment of the railway line to Hazelgrove with the prospect of a tourist operation commencing late in 2021.
This day will celebrate all the work of volunteers in the past 14 years.
Come along and help us celebrate.
Because of COVID-19 restrictions, activities on the day will be low key. Entry to the station precinct is $5 adults and pensioners; children under 18 free.
