Want to see Australia’s biggest operating steam locomotive up close, from a safe angle? Take a trip on Sunday 20/10 to Valley Heights Rail Museum.

There’s plenty of time to visit before or after your ride on the Penrith-Springwood shuttles behind giant Beyer-Garratt loco 6029. A family-friendly viewing area is set up for a great experience or you can take a ride on the heritage-listed Steam Tram for unique photo opportunities of the passing train. Stay around and do both? There’s time to explore all the great exhibits and activities at the museum: model rooms; artefacts & memorabilia; artworks; audio-visual displays and more. Join the friendly volunteers in the café for a hot or cold drink, snack or ice cream and browse the shop for that special gift or souvenir.

The mainline train passes the museum five times (in each direction) during the day and the Steam Tram rides should coincide with its timetable (10:25; 11:45; 13:25; 14:45 and 16:05) and should leave about 15 minutes before each westbound passing. Allow plenty of time to either ascend to the viewing area or board the Tram.

Join the action at Tusculum Road, Valley Heights, open from 10:00 (last admission 15:30). Standard admission fees apply (see website for details) Please note all activities mentioned may change due to adverse weather conditions or other operational reasons.
