Drysdale Special Trains

Thank You For Travelling With Us

The February/March 2024 Drysdale Special Trains provided a valuable opportunity to give our new locomotive drivers some experience on the Drysdale to Lakers Siding section of The Bellarine Railway, while also allowing us to gauge interest levels in returning a regular steam hauled train to Drysdale.

703 passengers travelled with us across nine trains, and three separate running days (with one more cancelled due to extreme heat).
Thank you to everyone who travelled with us, and showed their support for our Drysdale Steam Services.

We anticipate there will be further Driver Training runs in 2024, and we will announce the dates and timetables publicly if this is the case.

Regularly scheduled trains to/from Drysdale ceased in 2020, and we are working tirelessly to return this service in the future.
These running days were an important step in that process.
