Newsletter No.99 August 2017

  • The executive will discuss appropriate names of each of our venues. We will always be known as Wagga Wagga Rail Heritage Association. However with the emergence of other parts of our organisation the following is proposed for our other business names to be included in our incorporation
    • Wagga Wagga Railway Station Museum
    • Wagga Wagga Railway Gang Sheds
    • Wagga Wagga Railway Model Trains
  • Our new email address in the future will be info@waggarailmuseum.com
  • Any emails to our current waggarailheritage@gmail.com address will be forwarded to the new email. So we won’t lose any emails
  • Our official opening of the gang sheds will be next Wednesday 30th August. This will be opened by the Mayor and is by invitation only. We have approximately 45 guests. Arrangements are in place to promote all of our venues to our ‘Expo’ open day on Saturday 2nd September. We will promote the open day on 2AAAFM next Monday morning 28th at 10:45am.
  • Saturday 2nd September is our ‘Expo’. All members can assist on the day by wearing your official green shirt. Those who are only new and without shirts, talk to us on the day so we can allocate you appropriate tasks.
  • On the Saturday the cost will be $5.00 for a family, $2.00 per adult. Tickets can be purchased at the three venues – station museum, gang sheds & the model trains at the rest house. If you collect $2 for an adult – issue one ticket and write the date on the back 02//09/2017. If you issue a family ticket and collect $5 – give a ticket to all the family members including the kids. They can then show the tickets at our other venues. Put the date on the back.
  • Keith Cavill will be selling souvenirs at the railway museum. The model trains will be in full running order at the rest house.
  • In May this year we applied to become an associate member of Transport Heritage NSW. Unfortunately, our application was missing in action. Fortunately, I had the original email, together with our original application and the matter will be finalised immediately
  • A big thank you to Robert Gannon and his team – Ken Eckert, Phil Chorusch, Rod MacIntosh and others who have worked tirelessly to have the gang
    sheds to the opening stage. An incredible effort. I would advise all members to visit the sheds on the open day to see the final result
