Take a journey into railway history at the National Railway Museum, Australia's largest railway museum with over 100 exhibits representing State, Commonwealth and private railway operators on the three major rail gauges used in Australia.

Climb into the cabs of giant steam engines, walk through elegant carriages, enjoy free train rides and interactive and educational displays.

Why not take a ride on the Semaphore to Fort Glanville Tourist Railway? It runs:

  • Every Sunday and Public Holiday from October to April (inclusive)
  • Every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and weekends during the School Holidays in September/October, December/January, and April.

Steam trains will depart between 11am and 4pm, roughly every hour or at frequencies varied according to demand.

Brill railcar 8 project - update

Following the photographic match making, all the seats are now being removed from the railcar, to enable assessment of the timber floor condition, and easier access to all of the window frames.

The metal sheet roofing, applied at Mile End about 40 years ago, has been removed exposing the roof timbers - which are in very good condition considering their age.

Quotes have been obtained for replacing all glass with slightly thicker safety glass and all new window frames. Also costs have been obtained for the re-upholstery of all seats and seat backs.

All four external doors are in poor condition and will need to be replaced with new doors.

Bogies and wheel sets and axle bearings are being assessed for the required work, while options and searches continue for a suitable diesel engine and transmission components.

The project appeal for funds in now in excess of $24,000 - a big thank you to all who have donated, and we are still accepting further donations - tax deductible.
