Welcome!

The Australian Railway Historical Society (ACT Division) operates Canberra Railway Museum and both vintage and modern mainline passenger trains.

Our Museum and rolling stock workshop is in the Canberra suburb of Kingston, while offices at the nearby Queanbeyan Railway Station sell tickets for our own trains and for CountryLink services, and we maintain and operate trains on the scenic Michelago Tourist Railway.

About Our Trains

Our heritage trains use restored passenger cars from the early 1900s, and when possible are hauled by one of our century-old veteran steam locomotives.

These local trains usually operate from Canberra to either Royalla or Bungendore.

Our overnight or weekend tour trains visit interesting destinations, include air-conditioned sleeping and dining cars, and are hauled by veteran diesel locomotives.

These long-distance trains operate to a variety of interesting events.

The list to the right highlights major up-coming train trips. For a full program for early 2007,

More Information
