Richmond Vale Museum (Steamfest part 2)

Posted on Tuesday 1 May 2007

The next stage of the Maitland Steamfest excursion was a visit to the Richmond Vale Colliery and Railway Museum, somewhere I’ve been wanting to visit for ages. The entrance price was a bit steep ($15/adult), however the big administration building museum, and the large effort in maintaining the steam rolling stock, it was probably justified in my opinion.

And it’s the first time I remember of ever riding in a steam engine. :-) … (The little kids screaming “It’s Thomas! It’s Thomas!” was annoying after a while, though..)

I have a memory of my father taking my brother Tim and I here– the large building next to the railway line is what I remember.
