The Zig Zag Steam Exhibition and Art Prize was launched at Lithgow's Gang Gang Gallery on Saturday, October 5.
The gallery is a celebration of the first steam train to pass through the Great Zig Zag Railway and arrive in Bowenfels.
Artist's from around NSW entered up to three artworks exploring the theme of the Great Zig Zag Railway through their favourite medium for consideration in the exhibition, with a prize of $1500 awarded to the most outstanding entry, along with a $500 People's Choice Award.
Member for Bathurst Paul Toole officially opened the event and said there were many aspects of the railway covered in the exhibition.
"From its construction, the trains that run on the line, the viaducts and stations, passengers and train staff to name a few," he said.
The exhibition will run at Gang Gang Gallery until October 28.
