Train Rides

We operate a miniature 5″ gauge live steam railway, which is located at Ruse Park, Hoskins Avenue, Bankstown. Our Running Day is the 2nd Saturday of each month (except January). Members start their locos at approximately 10:30am and steam until about 2:30pm.

There is a variety of locomotives, including live steam, battery-powered and petrol engine locomotives, and yes we do give rides

Enclosed footwear must be worn when riding on a train; no thongs, bare feet or open sandals etc, So please bring your shoes. PLEASE NOTE: Our steam locomotives burn real coal, and sometimes small cinders may be released.

We welcome groups such as birthday parties. There are plenty of shady areas where you can set up your party. There are public BBQs in the adjacent park. For bookings, contact us by telephone or by mail.
