Pichi Richi Railway Preservation Society Inc. (PRRPS) gratefully acknowledges the immense contribution of its Patron, the Hon Tim Fischer AC, to the Pichi Richi Railway, railway history and heritage, the rail transport industry and the Australian community.

Tim Fischer was a strong advocate for the Pichi Richi Railway, and a great champion of rail and of rural Australia.

PRRPS was extremely fortunate to have Mr Fischer serve as its Patron since 2002, during which time he energetically promoted the Pichi Richi Railway at his every opportunity. He put his role of Patron on hold in 2009 after being appointed Ambassador to the Holy See. After his return, Mr Fischer was reappointed Patron in 2014.
