Get your hands dirty

To our valued members and friends,

Appeal for help from our members and the general public:

As you will all be aware by now, Reefsteamers is preparing to celebrate our 12AR no. 1535 100th anniversary on Saturday the 9thNovember on her trip to Heidelberg.
2019 has been an entire year of celebrations for this magnificent locomotive which is cared for and operated by members of Reefsteamers. We would appreciate it if you could please support this prestigious event by helping in the following ways;

Tell your family and friends about the trip and encourage them to book tickets. 

If you will not be crew for the day, please try and buy tickets for yourself and your family. Over and above this, I am personally appealing to every one of you to come an assist as and when you can with the cleaning and polishing of our 12AR as well as the cleaning of our train to have it all ready before the trip on the 9thNovember. We want to run this as a full train. It costs Reefsteamers a lot of money to hire in additional labour to do heavy cleaning,  particularly when some staff now work night shift, so not always having all staff available to assist.
Remember: Reefsteamers is your club and every one of you need to be involved to keep it going. In order to plan properly, anyone wanting to assist, please contact me strictly on so we know when you will be coming to assist.

For bookings, strictly contact /

For and on behalf of the Directors of Reefsteamers.
Thank you and regards,Shaun Ackerman
Engineering Director
