Saturday, 29 January 2022

Ride behind classic diesel-electric motive power from Maitland to Werris Creek (return) as we speed through the Hunter Valley in style on the North West Zephyr. The train will utilise a CLF Class — one of the last of these vintage streamliners built. 

Setting off from Maitland Railway Station, the train will also make stops to pick up at Singleton and Muswellbrook, stopping to drop off at Murrurundi and Quirindi before continuing to Werris Creek.

Ticketing options all encompass NSW Covid-Safe regulations and are perfect for couples, small groups and families.

The train will be in Werris Creek for approximately two hours. While there, be sure to check out the heritage listed railway station and the Australian Railway Monument and Rail Journeys Museum located within the station precinct.
