I’ve received information from people I know at the ARHS ACT that the fire was in a non-operational car (RDH), that the circumstances of the fire are NOT suspicious, and that the museum will be opening tomorrow at 1pm as per normal.

You gunzel, you.

Oh crap. They’ve lost a dining car?

I sure hope this wasn’t the BVJ or the RMS car. I had my 30th birthday party in their BVJ car, and I used to do some volunteer work in RMS 2360 back when it was in Victoria.
