Steam train to roll into Casino

TRAINSPOTTERS alert!

A 120-year-old steam engine, glamorously named Locomotive 3237 (pronounced thirty-two thirty-seven), is expected to roll into Casino train station at 2.50pm.

The immaculately preserved locomotive will be pulling a train of carriages dating back to the 1920s and '30s and decked out with cedar and silky oak harvested decades ago on the Northern Rivers.

The visit is a promotion for Casino's Beef Week festival, running from May 24-27, where it will be one of the prime attractions, doing round trips between Casino and Kyogle.

Tickets for train rides during Beef Week cost $20 for adults, $10 for children or $50 for a family of two adults and two children. Seniors Card holders can take a ride for $15.

To book a ticket, just turn up at Casino train station or phone 6663 4910.
