    • Hunter Diamonds (942)
      A group primarily set up for people interested in the South Maitland Railway and Richmond Vale Railways, to discuss history, research, preservation/current topics, modelling, swap photos, give site/trip reports and reminise about the good old days.

      Discussions of other coal railways (past and present) in the Hunter region are also welcome, as is any industry news that affects any of these lines.

      The group welcomes former and current rail employees of any operator in the Hunter coalfields (esp SMR/RVR), historians specialising in the area, railfans with an interest and people involved in any mining preservation within the areas bounded by Awaba, Muswellbrook, Newcastle and Stratford.

      This is a new group so things will be slow at first, but it is hope that it will grow into a interesting historical reference of the area and that it will entice many people with an interest to join together in discussion.

      Look forward to seeing you on the group.

      If you are interested in Industrial Heritage and visiting the Brisbane area take a look at the “The Workshops Rail Museum’ at North Ipswich, Qld.

      Thousands of workers have called “The Workshops” home over the years and during its peak over 3000 people worked on this site, making it the states largest employer at the time.

      “The Workshops” are now Queensland’s newest tourist attraction and the latest campus of the Queensland Museum.

      The Museum is state of the art and totally interactive.

      Behind the scenes tours are available and are a must if you visit the workshops, they are The Blacksmiths, Wagon and Carriage and Steam Shop.
    • Zig Zag Railway - Lithgow (1,180)
