We welcome public visitors to the Galston Valley Railway
on public running days. These are on the 2nd Sunday in each
month (including Mother's Day, long weekends etc.)
Gates open at 9:30 - rides from 10 am to 3 pm (but we may
finish earlier if there are very few people left or the weather turns bad).
Trains run continually throughout the day. We generally
have a mix of steam and "diesel" (i.e. petrol or electric) locomotives but on
days of a Total Fire Ban this will be limited to "diesel".
All Train Rides will stop between 12:30pm and 1pm for our volunteers to have lunch
Wet weather? Our running day will only be cancelled if
there is steady rain at Galston in the morning. We will usually run if the
weather is showery. A decision will be made by about 9:30 am. If you want to
get the latest information on the day, please call us on 9653
1630 after 9:30 am.
Hot weather. Our running day will also be cancelled if the forecast (for Parramatta) indicates that the
day will be 40 °C or more. If we have cancelled, this web site will have a note at the top of each page. You can
also call us on 9653 1630 to check.
Please note our safety rules and conditions of entry.
