NEWCASTLE FORESHORE – Railfest was a day of festivities on the Newcastle Foreshore on Sunday, 2nd of October 2005 to demonstrate community support for the Newcastle Rail Service, celebrate 150 years of rail services in NSW, raise awareness and funds for the campaign to Save Our Rail.

Save Our Rail exceeded all its previous public achievements at Railfest 2005. The eye-catching belly dancers attracted a great deal of interest along with Save Our Rail Lower Hunter Transport Plan presented by Joan & Darrell. Glenn’s Model trains, Su Cruikshank’s auction, the jumping castle and fairy floss along with plenty of other entertainment kept the crowd entranced throughout the day.
