A Melbourne Tram in Glenreagh???
The Glenreagh Mountain Railway is located on a long disused branch line to Dorrigo. They have had their ups and downs over the years. In 2008, the Rail Safety Act meant that they had to stop running their 1919 steam locomotive. The good news is that they recently received accreditation and hopefully will be able to run their trains again soon.
The Melbourne Tram is actually about to go the Sydney Tramways Museum at Loftus. The departure of the tram will allow space in their shed to be used on restoring other carriages in their collection. It will be a great day when the steam trains are running again in Glenreagh. To visit the Glenreragh Mountain Rail Museum click here.
