Well looked after and preserved, worth visiting. Can walk around to see the old trains.

I understand the CMR have currently suspended operations, but I went for a wander around the precinct anyway, and thoroughly enjoyed it. From the maintained and preserved station through to the yards and outbuildings there's lots to entertain someone interested in rail history. There are a number of interpretive plaques, and a fairly clear path that you can follow around. There are a few bits of rolling stock floating around, but there's evidence of some vandalism - a shame, really.

Have visited this tourist railway when it was operational and found it well run and a great trip on the old "Tin Hare" rail motors. It is a shame that over regulation shuts down so many of the rail groups in NSW and Victoria. However a visit to the rail precinct is interesting and allows you to see an old country rail yard still in good condition, a rarity these days. Hope they get up and operational soon.

Great trip for a Birthday, Anniversary etc. and organise a luncheon before the return journey or just a great place to take the grandkids for a train ride. How many young ones have even been on a train? The journey doesn't take too long but the old coaches are terrific. So many reminders within the coaches that I could point out to my own children from my youth.
The voluntary staff are just so welcoming.

Saw pictures of the lovely old railway building with flowers and plants around in a pamphlet but when we got there it looked very neglected, no flowers or plants. Still being used by trains to local race days and short trips but they must tart it up just for these events. Very dissapointed.
