For the second MACROC CEO Breakfast Forum of 2011 MACROC is partnering with Trainworks at Thirlmere who will open the doors of the Exhibition Building earlier than normal to welcome the Macarthur business community to a behind the scenes look at a great regional tourism attraction.

MACROC President Benn Banasik explains “The historic town of Thirlmere has been home to a significant rail heritage collection since 1975 when the volunteer based organisation New South Wales Rail Heritage Museum established the Thirlmere Rail Heritage Centre. Passionate, dedicated volunteers maintained the collection and shared it with the public. In 2007 the NSW Government recognising the importance of the collection committed to upgrading facilities to conserve and present the collection as a flagship tourist destination in New South Wales.”

“Guests will be able to have breakfast in the new Exhibition Building which showcases some of the finest examples in the collection including the Prison Van and the Governor General’s carriage, says Councillor Banasik.

Our guest speakers on the morning will be Marianne Hammerton, Director of Rail Heritage and Agris Celinskis, CEO of Trainworks.

Councillor Banasik encourages local business owners to attend the morning. “The MACROC Breakfast Forums are designed as networking events for business enterprises of all sizes. I would encourage you all to come along on the morning of 26 July to meet with other business owners, enjoy breakfast and hear all about this wonderful regional attraction.”
