Puffing Billy Railway - Belgrave

There's nothing better than a trip on our world famous Puffing Billy Railway at Belgrave, Victoria. Reliving some of the experiences of the 1920's is a great way to escape the reality of the 'Rat Race'. Someone once said that "even if you win the race, you're still a rat!" Well we don't know about that; but what we do know is that kids from from 2 to 92 have fun on Puffing Billy as they travel though the Dandenong Ranges on this historic steam train. 

A day out on Puffing Billy is a great way to relax, have fun and discard the stressors of modern life as you travel on this working museum of the 1920's. You'll rattle your way through the beautiful tree ferns and look down on the beautiful peaceful valleys. Perhaps you'll take in some of the panoramic views around Menzies Creek as you gaze at the distant horizon sometimes hiding Westernport and Port Phillip Bays and the spectacle of Arthur's Seat.

So why not pack up the family and take them for a  relaxing ride on Puffing Billy and maybe even a picnic at Lakeside? Puffing Billy was one of four experimental narrow gauge rail lines and the line opened on 18th December 1900, being built by 150 men in 14 months at a cost of 54,000 pounds or $108,000. Today, it would not run without the support of over 700 active volunteers involved in all aspects of its operation.

VicTesters also support Puffing Billy where Murray is a volunteer conductor. It's here we assist with passenger safety and doing that little bit extra for our community. It's also a great way for Murray to let his hair down and meet visitors from all over the world.
