Puffing Billy Race 2014

The race is on again!  It was a cold and wet morning but fortunately not too heavy or too windy while we waited at Menzies Creek Station for the first runners to come through.  Hubby and I were there approx 45 mins and there were a few others there too, rugged up to keep warm and dry, some out with their dogs.   Once the runners started coming through there was a quick succession of a few hundred before the train entered the station.  A total of 3300 runners I’ve been told for what is a very popular event up here in the Dandenong Ranges.

Congratulations to Craig Appleby of Cockatoo who was the winner.
