Passenger Train to Rylstone

The Rail Motor Society and ARHS NSW Division are now able to run a heritage train to Rylstone Station with the line now opened by the Country Rail operator John Holland. Come and join us and be among the first to travel along the recently opened extension from Kandos to Rylstone on the truncated Mudgee line. On Sunday 2nd September 2018 our train will consist of the 3 CPH Rail Motors Nos. 1, 3 and 7 from the Rail Motor Society at Paterson. A departure from Sydney Central is expected around 7.40am. Enjoy a Devonshire Morning Tea served at your seat while you admire the winter scenery as the train crosses the Great Dividing Range through the Blue Mountains. At Wallerawang we take the branch line through Piper’s Flat, Portland, Cullen Bullen, Ben Bullen and onwards through the magnificent Capertee Valley. Continue passing Clandulla, Charbon and Kandos to our destination at Rylstone. Following a short stay, our train will return to Kandos for lunch expected around 1.00pm, there will be a short walk to the Kandos Hotel where a typical Country Pub lunch will be served. There is the option also to bring your own picnic lunch or make your own arrangements. After lunch, take a walk along the Main Street taking in the life of what is now a quiet country town before returning to the Station. Re-join the train for a 3.00pm departure that is due to return to Sydney Central by 8.30pm. Afternoon tea will be served as we return through the afternoon glow so spectacular in the Capertee Valley. The train will pick up and set down at Strathfield, Parramatta, Blacktown and Penrith.
