DownsSteam is hosting a very special Bush Poets breakfast on the Drayton Station Platform, Sunday, 25th of March. At 8.00am, a hearty barbecue breakfast will be prepared by our friendly volunteer team immediately prior to the show. Then sit back and relax as two of Australia's best known Bush Poets Ray Essery and Gary Fogarty serve up a literary feast.
WHEN: Sunday March 25
WHERE: DownsSteam Tourist Railway & Museum, Cambooya Street, Drayton
Admission, breakfast, & bush poetry show is only $30 per person, with all funds raised going towards "Project 106" the restoration of Toowoomba's own steam locomotive, the “Pride of Toowoomba”.
Steam Locomotive #106 was proudly built at the Toowoomba Foundry in 1915 and is now the only remaining C16 class steam locomotive in existance.
After a little more than a century and over a million miles of steaming across Queensland rails, this once proud steam engine has found its way back home and into the hands of our dedicated team of volunteer craftsmen.
