PLEASE NOTE: We will be running Sunday Services ONLY during October
With the covid situation as it stands, we're currently have trouble filling all the required volunteer staffing positions and want to ensure we can continue to maintain a safe and enjoyable experience for all our passengers. For the remainder of October, we'll be cancelling all Wednesday Trains (Excl. 6th Oct) and running Sunday Trains ONLY.

We are offering regional Victorians a 20% discount for all online bookings for travel taken during October so please use promo code OCT21 when making your booking.
**promo excludes group bookings which are already discounted.

Tickets must be pre-booked online and you must reside in regional Victoria (excluding areas in lock down) or another permitted area, to travel with us. In the event that restrictions are re-imposed, you will able to transfer your booking to another date or receive a refund.

Unfortunately we can't guarantee we'll be able to operate our Courtesy Bus from Maldon Station into the Maldon township every running day, however the town is a very easy 8 minute walk from the railway station. This is due to limited volunteer availability during the Covid Situation.

Steam for Kids


Holiday fun for the kids. Why not join for us for kids activities on our trains every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday of the Victorian school holidays.

There will be strolling clowns and balloon activities entertaining the kids during the journey. So join us for a great day out. A holiday highlight for the kids.

Open the windows, maybe see a kangaroo, listen to the whistle. We help to keep the kids entertained throughout their journey with puzzles, games and facepainting.
