2018 – Railway Museum – Rolling Stock Cover Project Complete

In early 2017, Collgar was approached by the Merredin Railway Museum to seek funding towards a project to construct a cover over the rolling stock (trains) at the Merredin Railway Museum. The cover will protect the rolling stock from the weather and will help to preserve and retain some of Merredin’s important rail history for future generations.

Debbie Morris from the Merredin CRC said that “the cover looks absolutely fantastic and as well as protecting the trains from deteriorating, it is extremely aesthetically complementary to the current station buildings”. On Saturday, 14 April 2018, the Railway Museum Committee will host an open day at the Museum which will include an official opening of the cover.

Collgar donated almost $20,000 towards this project.
