The panels at Eden Hills, Coromandel, Blackwood, Glenalta Pinera and Belair stations will showcase the rich rail history of the Hills line and its importance in the Hills development and settlement from the 1880s. Their historical platforms and stations are preserved and still in use today. Blackwood Action Group (BAG) maintains the gardens at Blackwood and Coromandel stations and has renovated and regularly uses the waiting room at Blackwood. BAG's four regular district history walks include the station precincts and surrounding areas. Held during the year and History Month, these walks have always been extremely well attended by the public.
