Welcome, skip to the content.

Authentic steam railway linking historic gold mining towns of Castlemaine and Maldon in Central Victoria.
Family fun - take the kids for a memorable day out. Watch the world go by from your family compartment as the steam train puffs up the hills.

First Class - for a touch of class step back in time to an era of elegance when the journey was as important as the destination. Ride on the end viewing platform on the parlour car. Enjoy a drink from the fully equipped bar.

Catch the train for a return trip from Castlemaine or Maldon stations. Castlemaine is 90 minutes from Melbourne on the Calder Freeway. For a wonderful day out, leave the car behind and use Myki to catch the V/Line train from Melbourne to Castlemaine where you simply change platforms to catch the steam train.

After a leisurely 45 minute train ride you have two hours in Maldon to enjoy lunch at a pub or cafe and then relax on the train (maybe enjoying a drink form the bar in first class) back to Castlemaine.

Trains run Sunday, Wednesday and school holiday Saturdays. Visit the website for more information.
