The Railway is the sole survivor of four experimental lines used to develop rural areas in the early 1900's. Puffing Billy is now a major tourist attraction, its operation depending on hundreds of dedicated volunteers. Puffing Billy runs every day of the year, except Christmas day so why not take yourself and your family or friends on a sentimental journey along this 24.5 km operating museum.

Australia - Walhalla Goldfields Railway
Walhalla, Australia - A ride on the Walhalla Goldfields Railway is an unforgettable experience. As the train leaves Thomson Station, it crosses the historic and spectacular Thomson River Bridge and then travels over the winding and rising line towards Walhalla. This journey offers wonderful views of Stringer's Creek as it meanders down to the Thomson River.

As you pass vertical cliff faces and travel through narrow cuttings you will come to appreciate the effort needed to carve this line through such rugged and challenging country - a truly amazing engineering feat! Glancing down into Stringer's Creek Gorge you will notice that much of the line is constructed on a ledge edged by dry stone walls, still serving their purpose nearly one hundred years after placement.

Australia - Walhalla Goldfields Railway
Victoria, Australia - Walhalla Goldfields Railway. Travel on Victoria's most spectacular railway which now takes you on a journey along the Stringer's Creek Gorge form Thomson through to Walhalla. The Moe to Walhalla railway was one of four experimental narrow gauge routes constructed early this century by the Victorian Railways to develop isolated districts where conventional broad gauge lines would incur prohibitive construction costs. The railway operated to Walhalla until 1944, and the final section from Erica to Moe closed in 1954. The entire line was eventually dismantled between 1958 and 1962.

There was nothing left (apart from derelict bridges) of the original railway so everything has been rebuilt from the ground up since 1993. Tracks points, buildings....everything ! In April 1994 the Walhalla Goldfields Railway was officially opened and trains started running again within station limits at Thomson.
