BRIDGET Day and Ben Webster were two proud artists on Tuesday morning.
They were in Havannah Street to have a look at how their creations are being used to decorate the fencing around the Bathurst Rail Museum which is taking shape next to the train line.
Bathurst Regional Council says students were asked to draw a picture of what they thought the railway means to them or the impact the railway has had on the community.
Thirty-eight drawings were submitted by students from Carenne, Perthville and O'Connell schools, some of which have been printed on 50 metres of mesh temporary fence.
Carenne student Bridget drew former prime minister (and railway worker) Ben Chifley's train on the track, while Ben, a year four student at Perthville Public, drew the much more modern Bathurst Bullet.
Ben said the Perthville students had talked with their teacher about the yards that used to hold the trains.
He said it took him about 40 minutes to create his artwork and he was happy to begin with a clean slate.
"I started with a blank piece of paper," he said.
The Bathurst Rail Museum, which will feature a 20m by nine metre scale model of the historic Main West rail line between Tarana and Bathurst, is due to open in December.
