Train Temporarily off the Tracks for Maintenance

Cockington Green - August 16, 2022

Our beloved miniature steam-train is currently undergoing some additional maintenance in the lead up to our busy Floriade and School Holiday periods during September and October. The train is scheduled to be out of operation between Wednesday, 17th August 2022 and Tuesday 23rd August 2022.

The team are endeavouring to expedite the maintenance program and if it is possible to be back in operation before Wednesday, 24th August 2022, we will make an additional post on the website and through our other social media channels.

The maintenance program is critical in ensuring both the safe and reliable operation of the train. As we have noted previously, to put the train’s annual workload into perspective, the little engine and its carriages would travel the equivalent from Canberra to Perth plus a few hundred kilometres back toward Canberra.

We understand that it is difficult for visitors and our many loyal passholders who love to venture out during the day to entertain young children with a ride on the train, but we are confident our much-loved little train will be ready to resume as scheduled above, if not before.

We hope to see everyone very soon.
