V/Line has donated Southern Aurora sleeper carriage

Great news to announce that VLine has donated a Southern Aurora sleeper Twinette carriage to our Memorial Gardens.

The VLine Board agreed recently to give it to the community. After transport, cleanup and initial restoration work can be arranged, the shiny stainless steel carriage will be a major feature in time for the events and formally 'launched,' along with the whole garden space near the Violet Town station on Sunday Feb 10.

For those who know about these things it is NAM 2337, built c1960 in Sydney, into service from 1962, a Twinette Sleeper Car, not involved in the collision.
