Victorian icon, Puffing Billy, to return to the tracks on November 28.

November 19, 2020 Attraction No Comments

Victorian icon, Puffing Billy, will return to the railway on Saturday 28 November 2020 as metropolitan Melbourne continues to take safe and gradual steps toward COVID Normal.

After being closed for 250 days, the renowned Puffing Billy Railway will welcome passengers back on one of three services available, travelling from Belgrave to Lakeside on every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Team members of the Railway have been playing their part to prepare for a seamless return to services while the experience has been closed, including clearance of the 24km railway track, maintenance of the various trestle bridges along the corridor, and servicing of the locomotives, now fired up and ready to go.

Visitors can feel confident about escaping to the timeless wonder of Australia’s favourite steam train with a COVIDSafe Plan in place, as well as increased safety and sanitisation processes.

“We’re excited to welcome back all guests to Puffing Billy and have been truly humbled by the outpouring of support received during our temporary closure,” Steve O’Brien, CEO of Puffing Billy Railway, said.

“We have been working carefully behind-the-scenes to minimise the number of contact points between customers, staff and volunteers and preparing our COVIDSafe Plan. This time of temporary closure has also given us the opportunity to introduce new COVIDSafe experiences that we now look forward to sharing with the community.”

In addition to the excursion train experience, guests also have the choice of booking:

  • Private Carriage Hire – Enjoy the privacy and comfort of your own exclusive carriage with family or friends.

For more details on the re-opening, new Puffing Billy experiences or to book tickets, please visit the website: Bookings are essential as passenger numbers currently remain restricted.
