SANTA CATCHES THE TRAIN TO RICHMOND VALE

There was some early – but much-needed – Christmas cheer today, at Richmond Vale Railway Museum.

Santa arrived by steam train, together with Mrs Claus and the elves, delighting kids and parents.

It’s the first time the trains have been up and running since a bushfire tore through the area in September, destroying rolling stock and forcing the museum to close.

The money raised today will go towards the rebuild.
