KIM and Annie Baxter not only had a ticket to ride to Donald, they renovated a whole vintage carriage.
The Baxters and their extended family were some of the 300 people who boarded the T Class diesel 1950s heritage locomotive on Saturday.
The round-trip 700 kilometre ride from Melbourne to Donald was part of 150th anniversary celebrations of the township.

The Geelong Ballarat rail line was officially opened on 10th April 1862. This line was built to a high standard by the Victorian Railways, with double track provided throughout, stone station buildings at all of the initial stations, a number of stone bridges for roads that crossed the line, and the 1,450-foot (440 m) Moorabool Viaduct over the river of the same name. This line remained the only way from Ballarat to Melbourne until 1889 when the current direct line was completed.

Hi everyone, I don't know whether this will be posted too late for anyone to read, but just letting you all know that for anyone living in the Frankston region or along the Frankston line, there will be a steam-hauled special running along the Frankston Line between 14:35 and 17:00, operated by 707 Operations. I have also heard from a reliable source that the train will be at Frankston Station between 16:00 and 16:30.

Heading north on the Hume Freeway, I'm out of Melbourne and into the countryside within an hour. The sun's shining, the grass is green and the mountains, albeit modest, look majestic. The Goulburn Valley is ticking lots of boxes.
Surrounded by the Murray River, Yarra Valley, Goldfields and High Country, it probably doesn't get the love it deserves from tourists - especially at this time of lush paddocks and bushland, blossoming orchards, budding vines and rushing rivers. Heritage is among the Goulburn Valley's underappreciated charms, associated as it is with some of Victoria's earliest European settlement (Kilmore is the state's oldest inland town), the gold rush and the Kelly gang.

Following its feel-good formula, the chief executive of Great Southern Rail, Tony Braxton-Smith, dons a disguise and takes long, cross-country trips to appreciate how under-appreciated his hard-working employees are. It is watchable in its soft-hearted, warm way but the local version of this American reality TV concept does not do as proficient a job in disguising the obvious promotional value of being on television with stories of personal hardship and unexpected rewards from grateful bosses.

A Victorian trial that will use car radios to prevent deaths at level crossings might be introduced in Queensland if it's successful.
Queensland Rail chief executive Paul Scurrah says all options are being considered to prevent a repeat of Monday's crash between the Sunlander train service and a truck in the state's north.
