Eveleigh Community Heritage Day

The ATP Heritage Community Days run from 10am to 3pm on both Friday 16th and Saturday 17th May 2014.

This is a preview of some of the paintings I will display in the Blacksmith's workshop Bay 1 and 2 

 "ATP" is the acronym for the Australian Technology Park.
Not to be confused with Carriageworks!

The ATP is on the southern side of  Redfern station, while Carriageworks is on the northern side.

I will also have some paintings of the 3801 and other historic steam locomotives as well as interiors of the Large Erecting Shop exhibited in and around the heritage carriages. 
These carriages will be displayed by the volunteers of the 3801 at the western end, near Channel 7's new building.

In the centre of this painting is the legendary 'Davy Press', built in the era when industry operated on a heroic scale.
Richard Butcher,heritage volunteer and an ex- Eveleigh Workshop Blacksmith, will give tours of Bay 1 and 2 (which has the enormous Davy Press). Richard has written the most amazing book about the Eveleigh Railway Workshops and is a genuine living legend!
The tours will run daily from the Blacksmíths' Workshop at 10am, 12pm and 2pm. on both days.
To register for a tour communications@atp.com.au or m.saunders@atp.com.au or call (02) 9209 4162.
