The Picnic Train

Come aboard the Picnic Train - a living museum on rails. This is travel as it used to be - a little slower and a lot more fun! The star attractions of any day out are our steam locomotives 5917 and R766 - rare survivors of the golden era of travel when steam ruled the rails.

Our dedicated and talented volunteers are from a wide range of backgrounds and come from far and wide with just one thing in mind - to provide you with a unique and enjoyable day out. 

Whether joining us in Sydney for our signature Kiama Picnic Train or from Maitland for a spirited run to Dungog, Gloucester or even further afield, you'll love soaking up the scenery from our 1930s carriages.

We look forward to welcoming you aboard.
