Even though it was a cold day we stepped into the Railcar which was nicely heated. With our tickets we were given a brochure which described the history of the line and what we would see along the way. Leaving Daylesford station we traversed farmland before climbing into the hills.

I love going on this train. It is a must when I come to Daylesford. It is so relaxing and great scenery. Bought some DVD's of trains so I can relive my journey and see others I want to go on. Sure bets Melbourne Metro!

A fun trip on a nice old train. I can't wait for them to fix up the next section of line so that it's a bit longer!

Love the railway, and great for a ride on Sundays. Excellent market at the station on Sundays. Pity they dont have a steam train running, but the motor rail is still fun. Well done to the volunteers to work hard to keep it all going.

Premier Sir Rupert tore up the tracks in the seventies and eighties just as tourism in Daylesford was taking off, what foresight!? Pity our governments can't afford to rectify the consequences of his near sighted actions.

Daylesford Spa Country Railway is fantastic. Trundle through the forest on a real train! Just a nice break from the hustle of the Sunday Market - which raises money for the Railway. Keep in mind the monthly Champagne runs. Lovely finger food, nice cool drinks. Very elegant.

We didn't expect this but turned up at the markets and ended up on the train through the foothills of Wombat State Forest. Lots of families but still good fun for the grown ups as well.
