A great rail trip from Central to Moss Vale. We disembarked at Robertson for lunch at the pub (something that can also be recommended). The train then travels to Moss Vale and stops to pick up on the return trip. Really good service, assistance and organisation from the volunteers. The lounge cars are good - not to full, so you...

This train travels from Sydney to Moss Vale via Wollongong, Unanderra and Robertson. The carriages are superbly restored old-style wooden bodied vehicles, staffed by the friendliest and most helpful people. Everything happens at a leisurely pace, and the climb up the escarpment provides breath taking views out over the Pacific. There is a buffet on the train, and Robertson has... More

From the confirmation of the initial online booking to the final farewell, I found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The 3801 trip was to the Christmas in July at the Robertson Hotel. A diesel locomotive and 4 carriages. We had fine weather and the views of the ocean and the Illawarra Escarpment were amazing. It was a cold... More

This started before we even got on the train and throughout the day 1. I discussed motion sickness and that I needed to travel forward facing yet this was not taken into account, luckily other guests moved to accommodate this. Other operators using the same carriages can accommodate my needs. 2. The trip was "Steam to the Blue Mountains" yet... More

Even on a very rainy day this trip was very well worthwhile. We joined the train at Sutherland on its way South from Central. The weather spoilt the viewing somewhat, but refreshments (very well priced and cheerfully served) made up for that. All the staff on board are volunteers and just so pleasant and helpful. The whole atmosphere is relaxed.... More

The 3801 Diesel heritage train departed Central station at 8.30am picking up passengers at both Strathfield and Hornsby before travelling to Maitland. The train consisted of both first class and second class carriages. All volunteer staff together with members of the... More

Dear Husband is a train nut, so I usually try to plan a few train rides wherever we go. Sometimes, they are a bit tedious for those of us not entirely bewitched by rail travel -- seats can be uncomfortable, scenery repetitive, personnel downright rude. Our 3801 Limited trip was very satisfying to both of us, however. Our coach accommodations... More
