Enjoy rides in the 1880s Sydney Steam Tramcar OR a 1890 ‘Cowboy’ carriage hauled by steam tank engine ‘Stevo’ (or vintage diesel shunting loco X206)**. (See website for program).

Read about the ‘Call Boy’ – Listen as ‘Charlie’ and ‘Harry’ prepare steam locomotive 5461 for work.

View model railway layouts including a scale model of the Locomotive Depot in the 1950s.

Climb aboard engines & carriages from many eras of rail across the Blue Mountains. See the remarkable ‘Caves Express’ and the ‘Ice Van’, carefully restored to their former glory.

Children will enjoy age-friendly signage while older ones can do the fascinating 10-question quiz. Check answers at home and print a personalised certificate.
