New exhibition arrives by truck but rests on rails
The newest exhibition, a club diner railway carriage, has just been delivered to the Caboolture Historical Village. It is placed near the railway station/line but not open to the public until the internal display is completed. You could feel the mounting excitement as volunteers gathered to watch.

The Village People oops sorry the Crane Crew

The crane crew were well-prepared and waiting but the transport truck took longer than expected which only added to the anticipation. Cameras were at the ready and all went very smoothly. The two cranes moved so gracefully that they seemed to be dancing but they placed that large carriage precisely on the prepared rails that has become it's new home.

The resting rails

This carriage is an integral part of Queensland Rail history and will add to the already broad range of historical exhibitions already on display. And it's only about half an hour from Brisbane or the Sunshine Coast, a comfortable day out.

Now for all you train enthusiasts June 18th is a Heritage Fair at the village so there will be more entertainment and reduced admission fees. Have you seen the lolly shop that stocks all the old favourites?
