Train ride to Queanbeyan

Canberra has an historical Train Society and on Saturday ran a steam train from Canberra to nearby Queanbeyan. It was only a 45 minute trip (there and back) but it was a nice trip and the kids loved the old-world carriages and the steam of the engine which had been built in Manchester over 100 years ago.

There's a group of old guys (and girls!) who run the event and there were decent length queues of people going for a ride.

Although it's only a short trip it was nice to see the Murrumbidgee and spot a couple of gangs of kangaroos who hopped alongside a hillside as we travelled along.
