Playgroup Open Day

Thanks to all the kids for bringing their parents (and event grand-parents!) to our special open day last week at the Savannahlander.
We started at 9:30 with a short introduction and safety talk, then went through the yards giving a guided “hands on” tour of our engines. We had a ball showing off two of our locomotives and taking everyone for a ride up the yard in our spare railmotor unit (2053).
A particular attraction was the steam whistle brought in by our fitter (Sean) which was rigged up specially for the kids to have a go.
We also launched our Local Loop program which is aimed at connecting with out local friends of the Savannahlander.

You can check out the gallery below, and also see some of our other photos on our Facebook Post.  If you live nearby, sign up to the Local Loop and we will let you know when we are opening the yards again!
