Turn back time

Fraser Coast-Hervey Combined went back in time when they took a trip on the historic Mary Valley Rattler.

The train departed Gympie Station and travelled to the little town of Amamoor in the Mary Valley. Members enjoyed morning tea at Amamoor before returning to Gympie for lunch. The beautifully restored Gympie Station was the venue. Gympie’s Platform No 1 Cafe served the lunch on the station platform.

The Mary Valley is unique in that all drivers, guards and other station personnel are volunteers. The group all had a marvellous time, even though they got some coal dust in their eyes – just to remind them of times gone by.
