Jump aboard this return steam train and relive Queensland's first rail journey to historic Grandchester station. Add Museum entry and make a whole day out.

During this 2.5 hour return trip, passengers have the option to disembark at Grandchester station and explore the grounds, watch the locomotive be uncoupled from its train and ran around for its return trip.

Passengers can move between the carriages, take in the sights from the petite balconies and relax with the gentle sway of the steam train.
