Individual Shakedown

Nasty word I know, but...what should we be looking at a couple of runs up the Warby rail line would be a start. What else?

Not a bad idea. How about mid- to late-August, say, Sat 20th or Sun 21st? There are lots of good cafes up in Warburton these days, so an early start from Lilydale could have us up there for morning coffee, which could then extend to lunch.
