Swinging at the Transport Heritage Expo - Tin Pan Alley, Dancers and Steam Trains

Greg Poppleton and band returned to the Transport Heritage Expo at Sydney's Central Station today, Saturday 8 June. It's their third year entertaining visitors with Tin Pan Alley songs from the 1920s and 1930s to fit the Heritage theme of vintage trains and buses.

Adding to the fun, fantastic and colourful swing dancers came along to dazzle with deft footwork as the band played. Thank you Sue Ann!
