Popular railway enthusiast Bob Truscott has died

POPULAR railway enthusiast Bob Truscott has died.

Mr Truscott joined the Australian Sugar Cane Railway in 1980 and served as president for 19 years and was the patron until his death on Wednesday. 

In 1982 Mr Truscott bought a 5" gauge model steam and diesel locomotives and carriages.

He established Doroba Railway in his yard on Elliot Heads Rd. but most people called it Truscott Trains.

Mr Truscott built another diesel loco and with wife Dorothy invited kindergartens, playgroups and preschools to visit. 

During the next 28 years countless children and their families visited and rode the train and enjoyed morning tea.
