All aboard, it’s back on track

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - YOUR SAY -

LOOKS like the Rain­for­est Rat­tler (below) is back on track for 2019 after a suc­cess­ful run in 2018.

It’s 100 per cent vol­un­teer power that drives the Lach­lan Val­ley Rail­way (LVR) with driv­ers who are ei­ther reg­u­lar XPT or freight train driv­ers tak­ing hol­i­days to en­joy driv­ing the 95-year-old train and by do­ing so, bring joy to so many peo­ple happy.

Mark your cal­en­dar for Jan­uary 1-13 to hop on-board for a won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ence.

All tours will start and fin­ish at Coffs sta­tion, but please do not con­tact Train­link staff as this is not a NSW Trains ac­tiv­ity.

Ex­clud­ing Wed­nes­days and Thurs­days, it is planned to have two beaches and tun­nels tours, one beach and Co­ramba tour, a BYO Hin­ter­land Pic­nic Train in­cor­po­rat­ing ev­ery beach from Bonville through to the Orara Val­ley Hin­ter­land and Nana Glen.

To make it all hap­pen more vol­un­teers are needed to as­sist by work­ing from home han­dling tele­phone or email in­quiries, com­pil­ing ros­ters, brochure/poster dis­tri­bu­tion or hands-on help by be­ing a car­riage or plat­form at­ten­dant/ guide.

Vol­un­teers can regis­ter at rain­fore­strat­tler.com. If you have pre­vi­ously reg­is­tered, it is asked that you re-regis­ter so records are up to date.

The group are also look­ing for spon­sors happy to “get on­board” with this amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

Timeta­bles sub­mit­ted, once ap­proved by ARTC will be on rain­fore­strat­tler.com.
