									            ANNIVERSARY STEAM TRAIN
                                  Thursday 30 July 2009
The Workshops Rail Museum will commemorate a
significant milestone in Queensland’s rail history with
a special steam train event on Thursday 30 July.
On 31 July 1865, four A Class locomotives steamed from
the Ipswich Railway Workshops to Bigges Camp, now
Grandchester, marking the start of rail in Queensland.
Governor Sir George Bowen officially opened the
Queensland railway system, during which Lady Bowen
used a special silver spade to turn the first sod for
construction of the rail line that would continue on from
that point.
To celebrate the opening a public holiday was declared with the official ceremony held including speeches
and a banquet under a marquee at Bigges Camp.

                                                     The Anniversary Steam Train Journey
                                                     In celebration of this historic event, passengers will
                                                     board one of QR’s restored heritage trains, departing
                                                     from The Workshops Rail Museum’s own platform for
                                                     a one and three quarter hour round trip to
                                                     Grandchester, retracing the same route taken in 1865.
                                                     The trip will be followed by a traditional roast lunch
                                                     and dessert in the Museum’s Trackside Café, and an
                                                     opportunity to explore the Museum’s exhibits,
                                                     including the A10 No.6, the oldest operational steam
                                                     train in Australia.

This special event is unique way to experience the excitement and sense of occasion that passengers would
have felt 144 years ago, and is a wonderful opportunity to relive the romance and grandeur of steam train
travel and appreciate the craftsmanship and engineering feats of the early rail workers.
