Took the Saturday evening restaurant carriage with 5 course meal through the national forest from Dwellingup. Quaint , charming and relaxing 3 hour journey in this near 100 year old carriage. Beautiful view of the night forest. Would highly recommend

Worthwhile experience for family with young children. Steam train ride with nice view and fresh air, stopped half way before returning to departure point, good exposure on the mechanical sides of Hoe steam train works.

We had family visiting and thought this would be a great experience. We brought some friends with us also and rode the steam train. So relaxing

Is there a similar train from Perth to Toodyay? We went on a lunchtime train a few years ago and it was terrific. However I cannot find anything about the Toodyay trip just now!
