STEAMRAIL’S annual Snow Train tourist service was swamped by railway enthusiasts and interested onlookers when it stopped at Warragul Station this morning.

The double-headed train, powered by Steamrail’s R761 and 707 Operations’ R707 locomotives, was surrounded by a large number of people who ventured onto the tracks to get a closer look when it arrived shortly after 10.30.

A number of passengers who travelled from Melbourne disembarked at Warragul to take part in a local winery tour.

The crowd quickly dispersed when the train crew sounded the whistle, allowing the train to continue to Traralgon uninterrupted.

A Steamrail spokesperson said the train will return to Melbourne from Traralgon at 4.40pm, stopping at Moe at 5.15pm and reaching Warragul at 5.50pm assuming no delays.

Longwarry can expect to see the train again at 6.09pm.

  1. It’s noted that the main purpose of the train is missed…to take passengers to Mt Baw Baw and to Walhalla where over 170 people will visit and 130 will ride on the Walhalla Goldfields Railway. The train actually stopped in Moe where most passengers disembarked and more passengers joined to travel to Traralgon. This article make it sound as though it’s all about Warragul…OK so this is the Warragul Citizen…but there’s far more to this than reported.

  2. Hi Michael,

    This is a gallery rather than a news article – the text is there to support the pictures. Point taken though.

    Would it be possible to have a bundle left for me at the Trafalgar IGA for me to pick up and I will drop some of at Erica and Rawson General store and in my shop in Walhalla but it depends on what day and time that I can pick them up. Thank you Dion.
