Founded in 1948, The Sydney Live Steam Locomotive Society of Australia, (SLSLS), is one of the oldest Miniature Steam Societies, that continue to run today.
They have created and laid their track in a park like venue, which incorporates going under bridges (the bridges are great for photo opportunities). The tracks have stub points and throw over lever systems (manual moving of the points on track) and even a signal box and maintenance area. Red light indicates yes you guessed it stop.Yellow light at your next signal you must stop at the station.
This indicator system is still used with the modern electric trains that we catch everyday. In the centre is a Kiosk which sells cakes, drinks, hot dogs and ice cream and the odd souvenir. Party or group hire is available for further information, please visit The Sydney Live Steam Locomotive Society's' website. Sydney Live Steam Locomotive Society is on the corner block of Anthony Road and Betts Street, West Ryde. WeekendNotes will notify you of the best free community events, concerts, exhibitions, cinema, festivals, and markets in your town or city. Having a little boy obsessed with trains was reason enough for us to travel the countryside on various weekends throughout the years to ride on trains big and small.
Yarra Valley Railway currently runs out and back from Healesville station but works are underway to restore the track to Yarra Glen. Victorian Goldfields Railway is a true country train ride on board the big old steam engine that chugs between Maldon and Castlemaine or on special 'children's days' between Maldon and Mucklesford.
Bellarine Railway follows the coastline from Queenscliff to Lakers Siding then out to Drysdale. South Gippsland is a fun little diesel rail car that stops at Korumburra, Nyora and Leongatha stations. Mornington Railway runs most Sundays of the month from Moorooduc to Mornington return and like all of these heritage railways it's run by dedicated volunteers. Puffing Billy is the the most well known and is extremely popular with tourists sightseeing through the Dandenong Ranges.
Campbelltown railway is run by elderly couple Colin and Nancy that built, own, operate and maintain the railway to this day.
Diamond Valley Railway in Eltham is the largest miniature railway we have been on to date and also the busiest. Kerrisdale Mountain Railway is meticulously maintained, pride and joy of the owner operators but the ride and price left me underwhelmed about traveling so far for a short, $60 family train ride.


Como Gardens Miniature Railway is a fast little train that zips around the beautiful Como gardens in The Basin. Melbourne Steam Traction Club at Scoresby operate a miniature diesel train every Sunday between 11am-4pm (weather permitting) on a 1 kilometre track around the perimeter of the club grounds. Cobden railway has a 1.8km track with an under and over pass, trestle bridge, two tunnels and two stations. Box Hill railway runs on the 3rd Sunday of the month between 11am-4pm and tickets are $3pp. Wish I could give this more likes; a fantastic article and surprisingly difficult to find a resource like this.

Guards ride on the rear of the carriage and stations have been created at variable sections through out this wonderful venue.
Have lunch in the open area (fenced off to the track) where you can picnic, bring a rug, chairs, no alcohol is allowed. It is a 3 minute walk from West Ryde Railway, and just behind the carpark of West Ryde Marketplace.
Join me in my discoveries along the Mornington Peninsula and further afield by subscribing to my articles. From the cute miniature railway of Eltham to the big steam engine at Maldon and all inbetween.
The children's day cost $75 per family and includes train ride, animal farm, trolley rides, clowns, rides and more. Choose between the shorter trip to Lakers siding ( $40 per family return ) or the longer trip to Drysdale ( $70 per family return).


Mornington has both steam and diesel engines so if you have a preference make sure you check their website to see which is running on the day you want to visit.
You can travel the entire distance from Belgrave to Gembrook or take the popular option of Belgrave to Emerald Lake for a picnic lunch before returning. Rides here are a very modest $3pp for a good 10 - 15 minute ride that include tunnels, bridges and more. To ride on this train though is a little more difficult as it only operates during the two annual open garden weekends and during special pre arranged times but it's worth putting it on the calendar.
The railway is open to the public on the third Sunday of the each month between 11am-4pm and rides cost $2.50.
Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. They have created different tracks to suit varied locomotives, some drivers run single carriage, the majority operate with 6 carriage cars seating approx 30. I've seen the drivers with a pot of water, and yes occasionally the train stops to put out a track fire due to embers from the train in front.
This is a great railway and we have had many enjoyable trips followed by fish and chips in the park at Queenscliff.
There are no long queues, the kids love the ride and it's reasonably priced at $4.50 for the shorter track and $6 for the longer ride (children under 3 are free). It's more of an industrial railway next to the Eastlink off ramp and with lots of sheds and old machinery in paddocks than scenic gardens.
If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. At stages, you feel you might tip and just watching people lean instinctively is a sight in itself. I suggest you pack a picnic and enjoy the township of Walhalla.To read my full review click here.
If you're like us and live on the opposite side of the bay ( Mornington Peninsula) then hopping on board the Searoad ferry as a foot passenger at Sorrento is a memorable way to arrive.
