Thank you Murray for this post, its spot on with all of life's other goings on.
Love how gunzels think it's their god given right to know information and that deadlines NEED to be met. It's comments like made from our good friend ARK95 that make me (and Steamrail, we have seen your email) think, why do we even bother. The tone is just outrageous, including the comments I've seen from this poster on FB. Yes we have actually held back on some information due to this poster, why should we post something that would get ripped apart by this person, we feel as if we are damned if we do and damned if we don't, so we don't post anything.
Information will be handed out soon, at the moment there are a couple of more important items at hand that both ARHS Canberra and Steamrail Victoria need to deal with. By the way, after the launch back in November, we studied some of the comments that came back in and decided to purely market the Garratt trips at families. Yes there was a lot of excitement about the loco coming over, It's an expensive loco to bring over and the gunzel market just isn't there to pay for the tour we feel. That is one of the reasons why there has been no information. The fact there there will be hardly any 'long haul' trips, mostly be day trips or an hour's shuttle, is another reason why there has been no information, they will all be relatively cheap aimed at families as stated. July is still a while away and well within the marketing brackets that we have set up.
This post would seem to confirm it isn't going near South Australia in spite of the early advice.
No problem with this but clarity is key.
