JUNE 25 2020 Little blue train back on track at Weston Park

In another sign of life returning to the realms of normality, Bluebell, the little blue train, a favourite of Canberra children, is back operating at Weston Park.
The train, a much-loved attraction at the Yarralumla Play Station, started tootling around the track again over the weekend. It had not been operating during the coronavirus shutdown - also known as its three-month "holiday".
The Weston Park railway has been around since 1973, first with a little red train. Bermagui Foundry was commissioned to make Bluebell.
Bluebell runs every half hour from 10am.
