Steam Train to the Bendigo Easter Festival - Sunday

Join Steamrail as we head to Bendigo for a day at the Bendigo Easter Festival behind V/Line heritage diesel locomotive A66 and returning with steam locomotive R711 (steam Bendigo to Melbourne only).  

Sit back in your comfortable compartment and enjoy the scenery as our classic steam locomotive powers through the line's historic tunnels and viaducts. On arrival at Bendigo there is 6.5 hours to explore. After a full day out, relax in your comfortable 1920s or 1940s carriage with a snack, or some light refreshments as we take you home to Melbourne.
Steam locomotive R711 will be waiting in Bendigo for our train to arrive, hauling the train back to Melbourne in the afternoon.

Go first class! Relax in your comfortable air conditioned and heated 1930s-vintage 'S Type' Carriage compartment.

Experience our 1930's 'K Type' Carriages with gorgeous timber and chrome finishings. Featuring 'old-school' air-con, with the windows wide open to beat the heat and listen to the engine working hard up the Central Victorian Hills. Seating in either a compartment or saloon carriage.

Our on-train facilities include a kiosk which stocks a range of light refreshments, snacks and hot and cold drinks. A licensed bar will also be operating, serving a range of beers, wines and spirits. A range of souvenirs will also be able for purchase from our on-board store.
