  • Great setup. Knowledgeable and helpful staff - all volunteers. Train buffs will love the place. Lovely countryside and views to die for.
  • Nice place to stop by. Really strange the way the train station is almost diagonally split by the border. QLD has the majority of it including the building.
  • Great museum. Very well maintained. Nice to be able to walk through the carriages. Very helpful staff.
  • Awesome display and lovely friendly people .. a must visit
  • Very interesting railway history.
