Steam train trips are on
VOLUNTEERS of the Atherton Herberton Historic Railway are excited to announce that the trips using its fully restored 1905 Peckett Steam Locomotive along with its 1910 historic wooden passenger carriage will commence this weekend.
The train takes passengers from the old Herberton Railway Station to the Herberton historic village and has been made possible after the volunteers completed a major upgrade of the bridge.
Patrons can now book online via the website (www.athrail.com), or can just turn up at the railway station, however, booked customers have priority.
The steam train will operate on the second and fourth weekends of each month, both Saturday and Sunday. There will be other special days during which the train will run but they will be advised in the near future.
