This Saturday November 30, The Workshops Rail Museum is marking the 50th anniversary of the end of steam in Queensland with a party to celebrate the age of steam.

End of an Era – Workshops at Night 2

Step back into the 1960s, an era of rock and roll, groovy fashion, and classic cars.

End of an Era – Pin up 2

Tour the steam collection with our expert curator, sit back with a drink, twist around on the dance floor to tunes by Darren J. Ray and the Love Bugs, or chill out in the theatrette with a slide show of rare archive photos of the end of steam in Queensland.

End of an Era – Op Shopping 2

For those with a more racy taste, cheer on our nine finalists in the Miss Wild Thing 1969 Pinup Pageant. Marvel at a series of cars from the ‘50s and ‘60s, or just take the time to soak up the atmosphere of the Workshops after dark.
