Hosted by the Hornsby Model Engineers Co-Op Ltd, the Galston500 is an annual event which challenges a collection of 5” Scale Model Locomotive teams to complete a combined total of 500 laps of the picturesque 1km track at the Galston Valley Railway, to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis research.

This years Galston500 will be held on Saturday the 31th August 2024. With plenty of entertainment planned for the day, both on and off the track, the public are welcome to come along, watch the challenge unfold, cheer on the drivers, and even get a ride behind some of the participating locomotives, as it continues throughout the day.

Come and join us for a fun day for a worthwhile cause!

The Galston500 was started by Allie Thackray, who was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2013. After Allie and her husband Evan, were married at the Galston Valley Railway in 2017, Allie was keen to find an exciting way to combine a hobby they love with a cause that is close to their hearts.

Since its begining this event has raised and donated over $46,000 towards Multiple Sclerosis research. In 2024 with your help, we would like to add to this total.

This year once again the funds will be donated directly to the Multiple Sclerosis Researchers at The Westmead Institute for Medical Research.
