Heritage Railway Wagon display on O’Keefe Rail Trail now open
Posted on 22/09/20
A restored former Victorian Railway’s wagon can now be admired on the O’Keefe Rail Trail due to the efforts of a local community group.
Located beside the reconstructed platform at the former Axedale Railway Station, the wagon restoration has been a Friends of the Bendigo-Kilmore Rail Trail project that has taken over two years to complete.
In a short ribbon cutting ceremony, Mayor Margaret O’Rourke officially opened public access to the wagon, on Sunday 20th September.
“As the only item of heritage railway rolling stock now on public static display in the Bendigo area, this is an important asset for Bendigo as well as a great point of interest for the popular O’Keefe Rail Trail” said Cr O’Rourke.
Rail Trails Australia congratulates the volunteer Friends group for this and many other projects that are increasing the attraction of the O’Keefe Rail Trail.
