Lachlan Valley Railway have been monitoring the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in NSW and forecasting its potential effect on our operations. Unfortunately, due to the unforeseen impacts the Board have implemented the following measures –
• Postpone or cancel planned rail events or charters (and refund as required)
• Temporary suspension of any non-essential railway operations
We will constantly examine this to ensure operations recommence as soon as possible.
WHERE WE ARE HEADED
Currently the society is moving to a non-running period to help minimalise any further debt that may be incurred by the society, this decision is difficult, but it also ensures the safety of our volunteers and passengers in line with current medical advice.
Our overall goal is to ensure the longevity of the society into the future for the enjoyment of our members, volunteers and the public. The society will continue with maintenance on the fleet to ensure serviceability when we return to normal operations.
To achieve all of this, we could use any financial assistance to ensure we remain positive over this unprecedented period of reduced income.
Would you consider donating or ensuring your membership is financial with the LVR?
All donations to the Lachlan Valley Railway over $2 are tax deductable!
Your donation will have an immediate impact on the members of the society as it is used to ensure we are cash positive and can continue investment into our assets and business plans – this will ensure the viability of the society well into the future.
Public support to the LVR has always been key to our success. Your support will ensure our continued operations for the next generation to enjoy the rail tourism sector.
UPDATE: 24 March 2020
Temporary closure of the Cowra Rail Heritage Centre.
Effective from Tuesday 24 March 2020 the Rail Heritage Centre at Cowra will be closed to the public until further notice. Lachlan Valley Railway continues to work within the guidelines and advice provided by the State and Federal governments in managing risks associated with the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
The Society will continue to monitor the situation and take guidance from the relevant authorities. We look forward to reopening the Heritage Centre as soon as reasonably possible.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
