Train Rides Return for Carnival Time

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Spring Bluff Railway Station will be sticking with tradition during Toowoomba’s Carnival of Flowers Week this month.

Acting station master Ralph Hickey is looking forward to ringing his bell and welcoming families to the station for a special carnival ride. Every year at carnival time, a train runs between Toowoomba Railway Station and Spring Bluff station. Hickey said he loves to hear the trains arrive and thinks it is a special time for children and their families.

Thechronicle.com.au reported that a picnic is the traditional activity once the train reaches Spring Bluff. Hickey likes to sing to the children and said that they really enjoy the tunnels during the ride.

There will be two rides a day from Toowoomba Railway Station to Spring Bluff station and back between September 22 and 28. A live band, the Jim Miller Big Band, will play wartime songs at the station on September 22.
