HCVA Adelaide/Centenary of Trans Australian Rail Tour

Postby 2MSJ » Thu Sep 14, 2017 11:06 am

Posted on behalf of the HCVA.

It has been quite some time since a tour has been held in Adelaide and we are looking forward to being able to give our local Adelaide members the chance to show the rest of us a slice of their history and the work they have done on their restored buses.

While this is being advertised as weekend tour, the main tour itself will be held on Saturday 21st October 2017 from 1000 – 1800. 1897 (MAN SL200) and 1466 (Volvo B58) have been arranged for us to explore some of their old stomping ground and pose in some great photo stops. Along the way, we will stop in to see a display and demonstration of two vehicles exclusive to Adelaide, yes, the only city in the world that had these buses in service – be sure to come along to see what these vehicles are. Appearances from other historic vehicles are in the pipeline. The itinerary is still being finalised and information will be updated on this page as we get closer to the date. At the completion of the main tour, there will be a dinner run to one of Adelaide’s iconic eat spots.

On Sunday 22nd October 2017, a bus has been organised to transfer patrons from the CBD to a day out at the National Railway Museum from 1000 – 1600. An exhibition celebrating the centenary of the Trans Australian Railway line, linking the east coast to the west coast since October 1917, will be one of the highlights of the museum as well as the other attractions and displays it has to offer. There are also celebrations of the centenary being held in Port Augusta on this weekend which may interest some of you, but due to logistical issues, the HCVA will not be including this in the tour. We are sure the museum displays will still offer a great alternative location.
