It was back to the classroom for our volunteers yesterday as we ramp up our training program to increase the number of people that are qualified in various areas of our operation.

One of the exciting aspects of our recent training activities is that we’ve been able to use the recently restored Cooma Railway Institute building to facilitate our training. For decades, railway workers in Cooma would have used this space for their training and education, so it’s great to see this occurring one again.

We are still putting the finishing touches on the building restoration, but this space will soon be available to the community for hire. Stay tuned for more about that one.

Training will continue over the coming months. If yiu would like to get involved with CMR and help to return trains to the Monaro, please visit our website:
