The Lithgow Zig Zag Railway.
Located around Hartly Valley, Collits Inn is central to many areas and we decided to go to Lithgow and do the steam train
ride - as you would if you were mad about trains. They used two trains on this trip that takes about 90 minutes. Sometimes
both were at the front or one at the rear and the other at the front. Going through the tunnel you nearly get chocked to
death and your eyes start to water but what an experience.
The trip goes from Clarence to Top Points, where the trains are shuffled and then from Top Points to Bottom Points, where
they are agaiun shuffled for the return journey. The scenery is breath taking as is the engineering that cut and built the
three viaducts that the train goes over.
