The FOOD Train pulled into the Orange station on Friday with passengers from Sydney stepping off to take part in the final days of FOOD Week.
Wendy Driscoll joined the weekend of wining and dining for the eighth year.
"Orange is really nice, I've become really friendly with the FOOD week organisers and it's like going to visit friends," she said.
"I bring friends along sometimes but I'm on my own this time."
While the group has secured tickets to the sold-out Forage event on Saturday, for those with a tighter budget the final two days of FOOD Week still offers plenty of options.

Between 11am and 4pm Taste Wine, Picnic in the Gardens, Croquet and Lawn Games will be held at Patina Wines at 109 Summerhill Lane, with no cost for entry.
On Sunday, the headline act will be the Producers Brunch and Market, but there will be other budget-conscious choices on the festival's last day. The Sassy Vineyard Walk comes at a cost of just $15, the 90-minute jaunt commencing at 10am.
