Mount Victoria Great Train Weekend

26th & 27th May 2018

celebrates the

150th Anniversary of the opening of the Great Western Rail Line

Heritage trains including a steam train, markets, pomp & ceremony, rail memorabilia, model trains and more at the Great Train Weekend!

URGENT!!!! Police have asked us to warn people not to enter the rail corridor, particularly at Bell. There are other trains running and we don’t wish to see a wonderful weekend remembered for an avoidable and stupid tragedy.
