Mary Valley Rattler

Under the watchful eye of Station Master Bob, the Genies enjoyed a day out on the Mary Valley Rattler All Stations Train. The weather was warm and the train swayed as we travelled along towards a morning tea with freshly baked scones and cakes at our destination in Amamoor. Win Wynn’s historical and observational quiz triggered off much pondering for the answers although there were some travellers who even quietly quizzed the Rattler volunteers for some of the answers. On the return trip to Gympie, the train stopped at Dagun station where Geoff Harvey and the Dagun Community Group provided wine and cheese tasting, live music and craft stalls. Then it was back on the train to Gympie where a light lunch was served with the dining tables all set up on No 1 platform. Our thanks to the Mary Valley Rattler volunteers and staff for making it a great day - the Genies enjoyed the whole lot!
