It was a Dads outing with a difference last Thursday night – a 1920s Murder Mystery on Puffing Billy. We were met at Belgrave Station by actors from the Gemco Theatre who were dressed for their part and mingled with the crowd, setting the theme and murder scenario. On board Puffing Billy we were served entrées and drinks as we puffed slowly through the hills, with the rain outside setting the tone for the night.

The historic Nobelius packing shed was our destination for dinner and the unfurling of the murder, with the ambience of the shed adding perfectly to the atmosphere of the evening. Individual suspects were interrogated by the local detective and then each table had the chance to question the suspects in an attempt to find ‘who dun it’.  The clues were pondered. suggestions deliberated and guesses made as to who the murderer was.

The train journey back was time to reflect on the camaraderie of the evening, watch the darkness slide by and gently sip our homeward glass of port.

Special thanks to Stuart and Garry for putting in the effort of dressing up and a ‘well done’ to Fred for winning the night’s ‘best dressed’ prize – a family trip on Puffing Billy.

Thanks gents for another memorable outing
