While the train was steam powered, it could travel at 115kph and it was very luxurious and the first air conditioned train in Australia. Didn't I say that about the Silver Comet in Broken Hill? I am just quoting.
The exhibition was very busy, but well worth seeing. Art Deco is surely the most beautiful period of design. Cost to see the Art Deco exhibition, $22.
Dinner at Margots at Crown Casino. With work supplied card for two for one meals, price should have been $23.50 for our steaks, instead only charged $22. And she forgot to scratch off the number on the card, so we can do it again. Cost $22, value, including card, probably around $100.
