We must extend a mighty big thankyou to all that came and rode the rails today. You made it a really great day and we hope that everyone had a great time.
It is with some sincere sadness that today was the last time that we will see Murray and his extremely popular Phantom 2-6-0 steam loco the ‘Evanslea Express’, on a regular basis. Murray is leaving our club to take a new residence and retirement in the Sunshine Coast hinterland. We know that you along with us, wish Murray and his family a great time in this new chapter in his life. We believe that Murray will join the Sunshine Coast Railway Modellers Society located in Nambour. Our loss is their gain.
We are waiting to hear from the Toowoomba Regional Council regarding the possibility of the Toowoomba Live Steamers club relocating to another nearby park where we will be able to continue to provide entertainment for our patrons in a healthy environment away from the bats. We have had health concerns for both you and us for the past few years, and if our submission to the TRC is successful, we look can look forward to a bigger and brighter future.
Keep watching this website or our Facebook page at Toowoomba Live Steamers Inc. for updates on what is happening.
Until next time, may your rails be straight and your lights green.
Toowoomba Live Steamers Inc, 5″ & 7.25″ dual gauge railway.
Toowoomba Live Steamers Inc. miniature railway and engineering club hosts public running days on the 3rd Sunday of each month.
Members of the public can experience miniature train rides around our rail network at Kearneys Spring Historical Park in Spring Street Toowoomba.
We normally operate several privately owned locos as well as club locos on running days, including our narrow gauge “diesel” cane loco, and at least one of our actual coal burning live steam narrow gauge locos.
Each ride costs only $1.50 per person per ride, and members of the public must wear footwear and observe a few simple common sense rules. All are most welcome.
We are also available for private charter functions, where groups can make use of the excellent BBQ facilities in the center of our rail network, and book train rides for their group members. A great idea for children’s birthday parties etc, and the adults can ride too!
Come and see our railway and station, and feel free to use the BBQ and picnic facilities provided in beautiful Kearneys Spring Historical Park.
