A Not-For-Profit organisation offering scenic train rides, experiences, charters, as well as Day Out With Thomas weekends and specials such as: Easter Bunny, Halloween and Santa Trains. The railway has been maintained by dedicated volunteers since 1979 and features a unique collection of heritage steam and diesel locomotives and carriages from around Australia. New volunteers are always welcome.
Heritage Train Service: Take a scenic journey from Queenscliff to Drysdale or Lakers Siding, traveling alongside Swan Bay and through remnant bush.
· Trains depart from Queenscliff and Drysdale stations, on most Sundays throughout the year, as well as Tuesday and Thursday in the Easter, July and September school holidays. During the summer holidays, extra train running days will be scheduled. Service does not apply on Day Out With Thomas, Queenscliff Music Festival and Santa Train weekends.
§ Family specials are also held during the school holidays.
§ Private Carriage hire is available whenever the heritage service is running and provides a cost effective alternative to normal fares. Hire is ideal for children’s birthdays or groups of 20+ and bookings are essential.
§ Cycle or walk beside an operating railway from Drysdale to Queenscliff and return on-board our carriages. Bikes are carried free and group bookings are advised.
