Robertson Heritage Railway Station—Historic Car Day
Sunday 13th April, 2014

Dear All– Due to the continuous wet weather, we have reluctantly decided to cancel this Sunday’s Historic Car Day (and Machines) . The Railway Common is sodden and more rain is expected this weekend. This would render the area unsuitable for vehicles and it would turn into a bog in the wet weather. Thank you for your past support. Hopefully next year will be better. Please let any interested persons know of the cancellation. Many Thanks.
