Does size really matter?
Come to the official opening of the South Australian Light Railway Centre at 10:30am on Wednesday, 14 December at the Port Milang Historic Railway Museum. The Centre will be officially opened by Bob Sampson OAM, the Executive Officer at the National Railway Museum. After the opening ceremony, the remainder of the Museum will be open, together with the Alexandrina Craft Shop and its selection of handmade jewellery, knitwear and local jams and other tasty produce.

The Light Railway Centre tells the story of many light railways that once operated around South Australia in munitions factories, quarries, and to transport goods from ships at the jetty like at Beachport and Milang.

While you're there, try out the awesome new South Australian Railways 351 driving simulator, and experience the thrills of driving the recently redecorated diesel-electric locomotive 351 down the line.

Milangites once had dreams of reopening the line to Strathalbyn...but the cost was too great to relay the line which was pulled up...but they stlll hoped that eventually it would occur.This pugnacious little lakeside town is doing it's best to foster tourism in the congrats to them.Strathalbyn with it's much larger station complex could follow suit..they have a large building opposite the station in good condition that could be put to rail exhibition use.
