Richmond Vale Railway Museum will greet the September school holidays by hosting the annual Family Fun Fest.

Held on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 September, the event offers a variety of activities for kids of all ages and abilities.

“This year we have a heavy emphasis on Thomas-themed displays,” said Peter Meddows, the museum’s chairman.

“We will have model railways running, items for sale, a repair stall for Thomas toys, and even a display where children can take a turn at driving Thomas.”

“Also for the young ones, there will be a massed display of teddy bears, while older age groups may enjoy the radio-controlled aircraft or the fire safety display.”

“Miniature trains to ride and vintage farm machines can be found in other parts of the site, and of course there will be unlimited steam train rides.”

After Family Fun Fest concludes, the museum will be open for the first three Sundays in October, with the regular displays. Hot and cold snacks are available or families may picnic in the museum grounds.

Gates open at 9.30am each open day.
