Powerhouse & Rogan's Hill Discovery Tour
Veteran Bus to Powerhouse Museum Store


Join us as we visit the Powerhouse Museums Discovery Centre at Castle Hill, and see some significant pieces of Sydneys street transport history, from trams to doubledecker buses. There are also a great many cultural artifacts to interest just about everybody. In addition, the theme on the day of our visit will be Modes of Transport.

After the Powerhouse and a lunch break at Castle Hill shops, we will explore the remnants of the former branch line that ran from Westmead to Rogans Hill from 1923 to 1932, retracing the original route as closely as possible and photographing what traces are left of this ill-fated branch line. Travel will be by an ex-government Mercedes articulated "bendy-bus".

Our tour will start from outside Sydney Terminal at 9.00am, then pick-up at Strathfield station (9.25) and Parramatta station (9.45). Dropping off at the same stations, we will return to Central station by 4.30pm.

Copies of the book "The Apricot Mail" will be available for purchase on the day. This book by Bruce S. Irwin details the history of the Westmead - Rogan's Hill Railway, including stories, photographs, timetables and diagrammes. Price for tour patrons is $25.
