Yes it is great to see some assistance for the Bellarine Railway. I think I am correct in saying the cost of these two crossing light/booms was over $700,000.
There are plenty more projects at the Bellarine. Like most tourist railways, there are a number of items planned and underway.
There is the steady re-laying of reclaimed rail in the Queenscliff/Lakers Siding section. As many will know, this rail was lifted and transported from the Fyansford branch, made available by Victrack. Over the last 6 months or so there has been heritage lighting installed at Queenscliff and Lakers Siding. The Lakers station building has been fitted out as a recreated small county station building and a large gangers shed been built and fitted out also at Lakers. Heritage VR style seating has been installed at Queenscliff and Lakers.
I believe there will be open days on the first week-end in May as part of Queenscliff 150 years celebrations. Might be a good chance to check out recent achievements including conducted tours of the engine shed.....and the T is back in service. Wonderful
Now if Victrack would only fund the restoration of the Queenscliff station building....and then there's the transport and restoration of the ASG and.....and......
