Want to see Brisbane from a different point of view? The Workshops Rail Museum’s Steam Train Sunday program returns to the track next month, offering one-hour trips through Brisbane in heritage style.
Now in its seventh year, the steam train ride will have more trips available than ever before, departing from and returning to Roma Street station at 10:15am and 11:40am on selected Sundays.
“The beauty of Steam Train Sunday is that you’re experiencing the sights, sounds and smells of heritage transport,” says Queensland Museum Network CEO Professor Suzanne Miller.
“It’s the same with so many of the locomotives and carriages in our collection at The Workshops Rail Museum — they transport you back in time with their magnificent detail and the wonderful stories that go with them.
“Last year we had a huge number of passengers come aboard for our Steam Train Sundays, and there’s something quite lovely in an old world joy like this being appreciated in a modern city.”
Passengers on the steam train are free to move between carriages and take in the sights from the petite balconies.
