Portarlington Bayside Miniature Railway received a $2000 grant from Geelong Community Grants Program for a signal refurbishment project.
Work was then organised and the project began in earnest. The work included re-painting, fitting of new finials, overhaul of moving parts, new spectacle glasses and other minor works.
“It was pleasing to report that all of our signals had been completed by April, 2017. May we place on record our sincere appreciations to the City of Greater Geelong for successfully allocating this grant funding which has allowed us to completely fund the overhaul of all of our signals at the miniature railway,“ the mini railway’s secretary Brian Coleman said.
The railway is Geelong’s only passenger-carrying miniature railway, located on eight hectacres of picturesque parkland on the foreshore at Point Richards, Portarlington.
