As some of our loyal rail heritage enthusiasts may be aware of, this June Long Weekend will see the annual Transport Heritage Expo play host at Central Railway Station. With Steam train shuttles, vintage bus rides around the CBD, Devonshire Teas aboard the Southern Aurora, and also the reappearance of the famously preserved red rattler “F1” set, we at 3801 Limited are delighted to announce we will have our wonderfully restored projects on display at Central Station along side these other ironic heritage items.
Vintage EMD Diesel Electric “42101” and our restored Ken Butt lounge car “CAM502” will be on show at Central for the general public to see, taking part of the Transport Heritage Expo festivities.
This would not of been possible without the tireless volunteers providing much of the legwork and labour for free.
Most surplus money made from ticket sales is ploughed directly into running costs, insurance and repairs to keep our fleet operational. To undertake restorations, such as our most recent project lounge carriage CAM502, requires significant financial backing. For this we thank all our donors no matter how small or large as without your support we would not be able to undertake the restoration nor share the results of our labour with you. Some of our key sponsors are recognised below. If your name or business is not there we ask you to consider whether you too would like to become involved either voluntarily or financially (http://www.3801limited.com.au/donations.htm).
So come on down this weekend, check out the event, and say hello to our team!
