Itinerary

Day 1: Sydney – Temora
Friday, Mid-October 2020

Depart Sydney Central Station early Friday morning, travelling the route our carriages took in the 1960’s through the delightful Southern Highlands. Enjoy lunch in our dining carriages as we continue through the Southern Tablelands and into Capital Country around Goulburn and Yass. At Cootamundra we veer right toward Temora, which does not normally have Rail passenger access.

A shuttle bus will meet us at the Temora Railway Station for transfer to the Temora Airfield for the Airshow. Be thrilled by the sights and sounds of Warbirds including Spitfires, Mustangs, Kittyhawks, a Boomerang, jet fighters and the only remaining airworthy Hudson bomber.

A shuttle bus will return us for a good night’s sleep in our private cabins.

Day 2: Temora
Saturday, Mid-October 2020

After breakfast on board we are transferred to the Temora Airfield for more thrilling Warbirds action.

In the afternoon we have plenty of time to freshen up for our lively evening after being transferred back to our train.

In the early evening we will be transferred to the Temora Town Hall where we will enjoy a three course dinner with background music from Spectrum’s small jazz group.

After dinner, things really get going. Be entertained by the Leisa Keen trio, an all female vocal harmony group inspired by the Andrews Sisters and girl groups of the Warbird era. They will be backed by the eighteen piece Spectrum Big Band. Dance the night away with the Canberra Swing Katz dancers, a celebrated young troupe bringing styles from the 1920s – 1950s including Charleston and Lindy Hop to dance floors aroundthe country.

As the band, dancers and singers wind up we will be transferred back to our train for a well earned rest.
