TWO trains are set to stop at the East Orange Fork on Thursday as Elvis Presley fans from Sydney head to the Parkes Elvis Festival.
Charging passengers up to $399 a ticket, the Elvis Express XPT will pass through Orange at 2.30pm, while the Lachlan Valley Rail Blue Zephyr luxury heritage train Blue Suede Express will make an appearance at 4pm.
The stops will allow passengers from Sydney to disembark at Orange to access their accommodation, with Elvis impersonators and the reigning Miss Priscilla usually boarding the train to entertain guests.
The trains will return to Sydney on Monday.
