Steamrail Victoria invite you to join us for this exciting event of overnight travel in beautifully restored sleeping carriages, as we travel to the goldfields town of Maldon.
Our journey begins on Friday evening at Southern Cross station, picking up at Footscray and Sunshine stations before travelling on to Castlemaine. Enjoy falling asleep to the sounds of a steam engine working hard over the Great Dividing Range. Arrival into Castlemaine station will be in the early hours of the morning, where we will transfer on to the Victorian Goldfields Railways branch line. K190 will be eagerly waiting for us and will be added to the consist for a double header trip to Maldon. Listen out for the old clickety clack of a bygone era as we travel at a slower pace on to the beautiful town of Maldon.
There will be stops in the early hours of the morning to take photos and listen to the delightful sounds of double-headed steam echoing through the forest. Upon arrival in Maldon we are greeted with an enjoyable country cooked breakfast.
Here you have the choice to explore Maldon for the day with our Carmans Tunnel, winery and lunch option, or you may like to catch the train back to Castlemaine and join the V/Line train to Bendigo and explore the Goldfields town for the day and return to Castlemaine then Maldon, or remain in Maldon for the day, the choice is yours.
There will be photo opportunities with mixed freight and passenger trains to bring out your inner gunzel.
Lunch will be available in Maldon by wandering to the main street for a bite to eat in one of the many fantastic cafes or pubs this town has to offer.
