Murder on the Orient Express

Enjoy this movie as never seen before....

Join us as we travel in our own Orient Express while we watch this classic 1974 movie.

In arguably the best cinematic version of the ultimate murder mystery we accompany Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot (Albert Finney) and a star studded cast as he solves his most baffling case.

A welcome aboard glass of champagne in the delightfully Edwardian foyer of Tambo sets the scene. A short introductory talk will give us some of the background and true events that led Agatha Christie to pen the novel. Mr Tom Binns who has worked on the Venice -Simplon Orient Express as well as other luxury great trains and in the movie industry will explain some of the issues encountered by the film makers.

Murder on the Orient Express

Your white gloved uniformed stewards then usher you to comfortable seats in Pullman Car Macedon to watch the movie as the train slowly steams through the night to Maldon. Accompanied by the sights and sounds of our own steam engine, the level crossing bells, the passing lights in the night, it is an unforgettable experience.

You are aboard the Orient Express.

During the journey the bar is open and stewards are on hand offering a drinks service to your seat.

After a short interval at Maldon we return to Castlemaine watching Poirot use his little grey cells to finally solve the ultimate "whodunit".

Departs from platform 3 Castlemaine Station at 7.30pm and returns to Castlemaine at 10.30pm.

Tickets are only $75ea, sorry no concessions or children.
