Trains and Planes Sunday – 16 February 2020


Prepare for take-off and open the regulator as interactive museums combine for a new event on Sunday 16 February.

HARS Aviation Museum and the Illawarra Light Railway Museum are combining to put on their first-ever joint day of fun and adventure for all the family.

Visitors will be able to ride the trains at Illawarra Light Rail Museum and then see the planes at HARS Aviation Museum all in one day with a free shuttle bus between the museums on Sunday 16 February.

Trains and Planes Sunday is a new event hosted by the dedicated volunteers at both locations to showcase their step into the romance of travel in a bygone age complete with aircraft engine runs and rides behind a working locomotive from Australia’s industrial railways.

Prepare for take-off, set the road then wind the clock back into those grand old days of historical aircraft and trains.

It’s a unique opportunity for train travel, aircraft tours, car and vintage farm machinery displays combined through travel between the popular museums on a free shuttle bus.

Visitors will pay full price for their first museum of choice then receive a 20 per cent discount to the second museum for this day only linked by a free-of-charge shuttle bus between the museums at Albion Park Rail, beside Shellharbour Airport to make a great day out.

From 9.30 to 3.30 visitors can come to the HARS Aviation museum and have a guided tour to look over amazing aircraft like the Lockheed Super Constellation Connie and the famous world record setting 747-400 jumbo and the rest of those planes. Maybe you may want to sit in the cockpit of an F-111 or walk through a DC-3 or a Caribou, or even climb all over one of the long-range surveillance Neptunes.
