South Gippsland Railway (SGR)

I went down to SGR for the first time yesterday and had a really fantastic day.

In terms of friendlyness of staff, value for money and scenery its probably the best tourist railway I have been on.

The staff were more then happy to have a chat and were interested in where we had come from and also said invited us to come down and volunteer sometime

The redhen was in operation so it was good to ride it and we  started off in rain and ended in sunshine.

I would highly reccomend if you haven't been to SGR you go and do a trip down there soon

I have not been able to be down at SGR much over the past 2 months due to not having time

Allot of work has been going on the track between Korumburra - Leongatha with many sleepers getting inserted this weekend

All tho not needed Nyora turntable is seeing a bit of attention as of late with clearing and burning in and around the turntable pit and area now that we are allowed to burn off again.

Clearing and tidying up at Nyora could always lead to clearing the way to something else - if you get what i mean Wink

We can always dream tho.

What will the turntable be used for? As far as I know, there is no stock that would need turning.

Everything can benefit from being spun around now and then, even wear and tear for example.
