Take Me To The Events Page

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)

Brill railcar 8 project - update

Due to a generous flow of donations, now in excess of $23,000, the huge task is underway with a detailed scoping of the work and estimated costs.  Railcar 8 is currently on temporary freight bogies and positioned undercover in the Goods Shed.

We are very happy to announce that Chris Dunbar has joined the restoration team - leading the car body aspect.  Chris is a well known and respected identity from Pichi Richi Railway - and has spent a great deal of time on carriage restoration projects. Please welcome Chris to the Railcar 8 Restoration Project Team.

Donations are still most welcome, and are tax deductable.
