Authentic steam era experience appeals to all ages.

A past era brought to life!

Family Fun:
Enjoy the trip from your own family compartment, open the windows listen to the whistle, watch the world go by. Special family tickets available.

For a Touch of Class:
Travel in the first class art deco and Edwardian parlour carriages into an era of decadence and elegance where the journey was as important as the destination. Sit back and enjoy a drink from the bar. Ride on the end platform of the observation car.

Ride With the Driver;
For a small extra fare you may ride on the locomotive with the driver. Conditions apply and preboooking is essential.

Travel Suggestion;

Why not catch the late morning train from Castlemaine to Maldon where you have a leisurely 2 hours to explore the little township and have lunch at one of the pubs or cafes. Then relax on the mid afternoon train as the train takes you back to Castlemaine.
