AFTER years of work by volunteers, the official launch of the Atherton Herberton Historic Railway’s steam train and carriage was held last week, heralding the start of trips from the town’s old railway station to the Herberton Historic Village.

The group’s fully restored 1905 Peckett Steam Locomotive, along with its 1910 historic wooden passenger carriage, have begun hosting passengers, with trips operating on the second and fourth weekends of each month, on both Saturday and Sunday.

Patrons can now book online via the website (, or can just turn up at the railway station, however, booked customers have priority.
