Two More Trains For Singleton organising another trek to Muswellbrook Regional Arts Centre

LOCAL advocacy alliance Two More Trains For Singleton (TMTFS) is organising another trip to Muswellbrook this week.

The group, which campaigns for additional daily passenger rail services from Newcastle to the Upper Hunter, will take the opportunity to transport residents to the Muswellbrook Regional Arts Centre on Thursday, October 17, to witness three exhibits before they finish.

Odyssey: 8 Artists is an exhibition by Anne Bray, Janice Hanicar, Hope Hardy and Julia McNaught inspired by an eventful and adventurous journey originating in a visit to Hollydene Estate at Jerrys Plains and Upper Hunter landscapes.

A second exhibit, Hymns to a Passion, is an exploration of colour, rhythm and form, where abstract expressionist artist Gabrielle Jones realises freedom and ease in her latest body of work.

Australian art from the 1960s is a section of works from the Max Watters Collection.

"The free exclusive gallery viewing is organised by the Two More Trains for Singleton group to highlight the benefits of more frequent train services to the Upper Hunter," spokesperson Martin Fallding said.

"The exhibition is free - all you need is an Opal card to travel on the train.

"And, everyone is welcome to attend."

The train departs Singleton at 5.34pm, arriving at Muswellbrook Station at 6.04pm.

The return train leaves Muswellbrook at 7.24pm, reaching its destination at Singleton at 7.55pm.

The train leaves earlier from Hamilton, Maitland and other Hunter Line stations.
