This was our first overnight tour. A nice run up to Swan Hill then turn the DERM on the turntable at Swan Hill before stabling it in the yard for the evening. A nice dinner in town was supplied as part of the tour as was a big breakfast in the morning. The DERM ran out to the end of the line at Piangil before running back into Swan Hill and on to Melbourne. The DERM ran beautifully all day and the weather was great. Everything went well with everyone having a great time. We thank everyone for making this possible.
