Opal Club Outing - Thursday 25 July

On board for first Opal Club Outing were 31 Probus members, despite initial faults on both the North Shore and Metro lines that morning. It was great to see so many enjoying the company, camaraderie and comfort of the new train. The trip was followed by a convivial lunch time experience (with complimentary wine) at Griddle Restaurant, just across the road from the Metro station at Rouse Hill.

Afterwards participants either travelled to Tallawong Station (the end of the line)  or strolled through the vast shopping centre at Rouse Hill, before returning home.
