Mount Victoria Great Train Weekend
This year there'll be a steam train trip from Sydney to Mount Victoria, and two heritage shuttle services. The steam train will shuttle between Mount Victoria and Lithgow and an old rail motor will shuttle between Mount Victoria and Katoomba.
The Mount Victoria Community Association is organising train related activities, including a model train display at the historic and beautifully refurbished Mount Victoria Railway Station. Weather permitting there'll be markets in the park and a child's trolley "train" ride around the park. Various venues around town will feature live music.
This is truly a community event with Mount Victoria businesses and non-profit organisations joining in with their own Great Train Weekend activities. A Buster Keaton silent movie, The General, at Mount Vic Flicks with a musical score and introduction by David Stratton, a "Railway Journeys" dinner at Mount Victoria Manor, railway pies and soup at the Victoria and Albert Guesthouse and historic displays at the Mount Victoria Museum are just a some of the activities planned.
The Mount Victoria Community Association would like to acknowledge the financial support of the Foundation for Regional and Rural Renewal, including donor partners FRRR & Friends and Scenic World Blue Mountains.
Trains are being run and provided by Transport Heritage NSW. Tickets for the Sydney/Mount Victoria steam train and rail motor can be booked via the NSW Rail Museum website via the website link where information about timetables can also be found. Tickets to other activities will be available on the day in Mount Victoria or by contacting the relevant business.
