Carols at Swanbank for the Queensland Pioneer Steam Railway
Date Posted: Mon, 14 Dec 2020
Time to celebrate Christmas after a year of many challenges. Thanks to our new Musical Director, Robert Shearer, we have the opportunity to entertain passengers as they boarded the Queensland Pioneer Steam Railways steam train at Swanbank over the weekends of the 5th - 6th December and again on the 19th - 20th December. Our members had a fantastic time and the entertainment was enjoyed by all those who boarded the train. Even Santa, Mrs Clause and that naughty elf could not resist joining in.
If you're looking for something to next Saturday or Sunday why not come out and listen to the carols and watch the magnificent steam trains depart the station.
