Last Steam Train to Ferny Grove

Sunday was the last visit by the QR Steam Train to Ferny Grove. Now that work is beginning on the Railway Station upgrade, future visits will not be possible. The upgrade will remove the additional track required for engine to change direction at the end of the line.

Last Steam Train to Ferny Grove - Arriving

I was on the train from Michelton to Roma Street. I hadn't been on this particular train before, and I am not a train fanatic by any means, but it was a good experience. Some friends reported the tickets were sold out, so I am glad I got in early.

Many kids were on the train and they appeared to have a blast. The event also commanded the presence of dozens of amateur and professional photographers and videographers. No doubt if you didn't get to see the train's visit it is now well documented online. (the photo in this blog post is by stephenk1977  and the video by allsteamedup1.)

Ferny Grove Railway Station Upgrade: Half Baked?

BrizCommuter, a blog about Brisbane public transport issues, has a blog post describing how the original plans for the Ferny Grove Railway Station upgrade have been scaled back from 3 to 2 platforms, and what this means for the capacity of the station once the upgrade is complete.

Ferny Grove Community Christmas Event - Tonight!

Update: Cancelled due to rain (According to @erin_lucy_loves)

I nearly missed this. There is Ferny Grove Community Christmas event tonight at Ferny Grove primary school oval on McGinn Road. Entertainment starts at 4pm. Its been a very wet day today so I hope the festivities are not washed out.

Aside: I found out about this from a page on 96five's (the radio station) website. 96Five really needs a new and better domain name. is not the best branding.
