Train enthusiasts will gather with Instagram photographers, with Moreton Bay Regional Council running an ‘Instameet’ to capture the arrival of the restored steam trains.

Volunteers have restored the BB18 ¼ 1079 and 1089, which will tow nine carriages with one dating back to 1902, at the Queensland Rail workshop at Ipswich over the past six months.
