The organiser of the get together is a volunteer with the Victorian Goldfields Railway. He arranged a trip for us on the VGR from Muckleford station to Maldon via Castlemaine. We went to the Muckleford station where we waited to board the first class carriage.
It was a treat travelling in the first class carriage with Lesley and the others. (all photos inside carriage by Lesley)
During our stop in Castlemaine, the engine was reversed on a turntable and then attached to the other end of the train.
We returned the way we came but this time proceeding on to Maldon. It was a little walk from the station into the village. Maldon is a charming village with many old buildings. Our first stop was at the Kangaroo Hotel where we had a good lunch in the beer garden.
We then returned to our camp site.
