Memorial Service

10am Monday 3 February

Ron Fluck (OAM) passed away on 10 December 2019 – aged 93 years.

Ron was the founder of the original Railway Museum at Mile End in 1963, and devoted his life to developing and growing the museum over the decades.  One of the display pavilions at the railway museum was named in his honour.

A special memorial service to recognise and honour his life will be conducted by his family at the National Railway Museum, 76 Lipson Street Port Adelaide.

Everyone who knew, or knew of Ron, who wishes to attend, can do so with no entry fee applicable that morning.  The museum will be closed to the general public until 12 noon that day.

A few speeches and an audio visual presentation will occur, with light refreshments served on site inside one of his favourite carriages, immediately after the conclusion of the service.

Car parking is available at the museum site with access off Baker Street.









Dates for carriage tours in 2020 will soon be available. Bookings not required.
