“All Aboard”…..for the last time in Cairns !

The Band played, the final speeches were made, the Celebratory cake was cut……then “All Aboard” was called for Sunlander passengers at Cairns Railway Station. The train graciously left the platform to cheers, some tears, claps and waves from all who were there to Farewell this sentimental train for one more time….the last time, on New Years Eve 2014.

A well earned retirement was awaiting her after she completed this final journey and rolled into Roma Street station on New Years Day 2015….the end of an era spanning 61 years of Qld Rail History.

Thank you for all the memories to a train that meant so much to so many.
