A number of activities are undertaken or initiated at Cooma during the quieter winter/spring months. In 2002 this included re-painting of the station building. The results of this undertaking are here for all to see.
The colours are heritage colours, replacing the previous scheme of cream, green and dark red (see photos in 'Home Base' and 'History' pages). In addition to the repainting, the awning over the platform and the beautiful decorative eaves were among the features to be renewed. The results are excellent, as you can see.
We hope that you will be able to see the station for yourself in the near future, and come on a ride with us into the bargain.
The Cooma railway station scales have returned after some 23 years. They were purchased by the Cooma Historical Society when the railway closed in 1989 for the princely sum of $5. They have been stored ever since. Unfortunately the weights and a lever and bar are missing from the top of the scales.
The scales were given a clean and then a new coat of black paint. They were placed back in their position on the platform on Saturday 9/6/12.
A big thank you to the Cooma Historical Society.
