If you’ve been to Moss Vale recently you would have seen a big poster hanging from the railway bridge.
Despite the typo, it’s time to celebrate.
December 9 will mark the 150th birthday of the Moss Vale Railway Station.
The station’s sesquicentenary will be held from 10am till 3pm at the station.
The Highlands Pipes and Drums Band and Army Cadets ACU Chevalier will be present as well as the RSL Youth Choir.
You can get a full history of the station from the Australian Railway Historical Society stall, a scone or cup of tea from the CWA stall or a sausage sizzle from the Rotary stall.
There will be historical photos to look at, a NSW Railway Museum exhibition and the chance to ride a shuttle train.
This year, 2017, we celebrate the 150th anniversary, or sesquicentenary, of services between Picton and Moss Vale on the Great Southern Railway, and the opening of Mittagong, Bowral and Moss Vale stations.
It’s set to be a big community celebration- so get ready!
