Hey guys

I saw a poster while at Mitchelton the other day, and the Blackwood St Chamber of Commerce has organised some short steam tours running from Mitchelton to Roma St and return. Doing a few trips so thought I'd give a heads up for anyone interested.

IIRC, there is no angle on the Ferny Grove line, so does that mean they will be running the loco/tender backwards on every second trip?

Correct.

Ok, 2 shunts per trip. I just assumed they would do the exhibition loop and only do the one shunt at Mitchelton.

Nah, no way to get from the Ferny Grove flyover over to the Exhibition line and vv.
