PHOTOS, VIDEOS: Hundreds cheer in Anzac Troop Train

HUNDREDS of people gathered at the Gladstone Train Station this morning to wave in the Troop Train as it arrived in Gladstone this morning at 10am.

Members of the live history unit from Rockhampton played their drums and marched through the crowd before the train arrived and again to welcome the train passengers.

After the Troop Train arrived, the passengers and onlookers walked to Anzac Park for a wreath laying ceremony.

Plenty of people had their phones and cameras ready to record the historical moment when the Troop Train arrived, including Pedro.

He had a great set up with his camera mounted on a tripod.
