Full steam ahead at historical village markets
MAL Eggans and Jim McBryde might look like pair of jokers sitting on a miniature train.
But they are the backbone of the Calliope Historical Village Markets, according president of the Port Curtis Historical Society Harold Harvey.
He said the two men were the stalwarts of the event - even if they spent a fair bit of time riding a train designed for kids.
"I didn't say kids of any particular age," Mr Harvey laughed.
He said the grounds had been affected by Tropical Cyclone Marcia and stall holder numbers were down on Sunday.
Despite the challenges, he said the community came together and cleaned up in time for the first market of the year.
"We had trees down all over," Mr Harvey said. "But about five or six of us got together and cleaned it all up."
The next markets will be on May 4.
