I’m here today to talk about a major historical society in Australia – this society is the Rail Motor Society of Paterson, a 50km drive north of Newcastle, NSW.
Conserving Rail Heritage: The aim of the Rail Motor Society is the conservation of NSW’s rail heritage. The Rail Motor Society’s main aim is to ensure their fleet of rail motors (CPH620/720 and “Tin Hares”) are preserved for current and future generations to enjoy. The Society and their dedicated volunteers take great pride in preserving significant items of State Heritage Register listed rolling stock and are committed to sharing Australia’s rail story with the general public.
Location: The Rail Motor Society is based in a restored Station Master’s Cottage in Paterson. Paterson is located on the Lower North Coast of NSW, 50km north of Newcastle.
