PV Pyap 120th anniversary
« on: February 11, 2017, 06:12:13 PM »
As mentioned in the thread on PS Adelaide's 150th, the same weekend had festivities in Swan Hill for the 150th anniversary of Murray Downs homestead, the 120th anniversary of PV Pyap, and the 50th anniversary of the official opening of the pioneer village (built around PS Gem).
I spent Saturday in Echuca, then made an early start on Sunday, but still with time to call via Koondrook to observe two projects.
I was then on a lunch cruise on Pyap, an inspection at Murray Downs, and at a ceremony at the village.
