An interesting experience. Unfortunately the Steam Engine was not operating, was hauled by vintage diesel, not as interesting, but can understand that taking hours to get steam up for a limited patronage is not on. Friendly people. Rail travel as it was.

All the generations in our family group loved the atmosphere, the steam engine, its atmospheric whistle and waving to people on the trip to Mornington and back. There weren't many passengers on the 3.00pm trip and that enabled one of the volunteers to take photos...More

Visited railway on the School Holiday Wednesday specials. A bit disappointed with the numbers of passengers, the more the merrier – usually to give a sense of occasion - but on this day numbers were very low, which made for a fairly low level experience....More
