G42 rarely visits Gembrook, but on Saturday 30 June 2012 it will do so.
This is to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the last train to Beech Forest which occurred on Saturday 30 June 1962, and was also run by G42.
For the occasion the consist of the train will be as close as possible to that used in 1962 - which was two NC vans, two NU vans, about five canopied NQR trucks, and one open-topped NQR truck. The train will bear a headboard similar to that used in 1962, and it is hoped to paint the buffer beams of the loco red - just for this occasion and as they were in 1962. It is also hoped to fit a headlight as in 1962.
Normal fares and booking arrangements apply for this trip, but parties can book an NQR truck if they wish! Those who are members of PBPS can use their Members Travel Vouchers on this trip.
