Lachlan Valley Railway need your help to start a new era at Orange East Fork Locomotive Depot
Lachlan Valley Railway are ready to head to Orange East Fork Depot to create a new operating base in the Central West. From the new base we can expand our operations in the Central West with more diesel, steam and railmotor tours.
To begin this process we are looking to raise around $10,000 to ensure the necessary repairs are undertaken so the depot can accept all of our rolling stock safely. This includes track work and repairs to the turntable within the depot.
Lachlan Valley Railway is not-for-profit organisation established in 1974 for the purpose of collecting, preserving and presenting the railway heritage of NSW based in the New South Wales central west town of Cowra (approx 308km from Sydney).
Today the LVR operates a wide range of rail journeys featuring NSW’s most beloved heritage trains ranging from steam, diesel and vintage rail motors right across regional NSW.
During the 2017/18 financial year our heritage operations carried 10,453 customers and 18,000kms were traveled in revenue service covering about 60% of the states regional lines.
Thank you for your interest and dont forget to join the society!
