The museum regularly opens to the public with train rides on the Second Sunday of each month, from 11:00am to 4:00pm. We also operate on the fourth Sunday in January, Easter Sunday and the Sunday of the June (Queen's Birthday) and October (Labour Day) long weekends.
Steam locomotives operate on the monthly running day but may be replaced by a diesel locomotive due to a total fire ban or other operational requirement such as volunteer availability.
The museum is open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays between 9:30am and 3:30pm for visitors. These are our working days and public inspections are welcome, however a gold coin donation applies to guided locomotive shed tours.
Please note that the museum is not open on Christmas Day, Boxing Day or New Years Day.
The museum site is available for hire for private functions such as Christmas Parties, Weddings or Social Club functions. Schools' educational visits are a specialty and are very welcome. Other group visits such as seniors and motoring clubs can also be arranged.
Site hire can be organised with or without the railway in operation. Depending on your budget, you may choose from the miniature railway, diesel or steam train or go for all the options!
The shelters in the picnic area can be reserved on running days for groups. Book ahead to avoid disappointment!
