Steamrail invites you to join our tour to the historic Murray River township of Echuca. This will be a chance to travel behind our 1915 built steam locomotive A2 986 and 1951 built Hudson R761 (as far as Seymour) and to relax in our magnificently restored country E and S type compartment carriages.
Our journey for the forward trip will take on a different route through Seymour and Murchison East and branch off on to the rarely used cross-country line from Toolamba to Echuca. This line seldom sees passenger trains as it is a freight only line. So sit back and relax as we wind our way through to Echuca.
Upon arrival in Echuca there will be just under four hours to experience country hospitality at your leisure. There is the Port of Echuca, famous for its wharf and paddlesteamers. Grab a bite to eat in one of the many pubs or bakeries along the way. Alternatively you may opt for one of the packages we have put together, making it easy to enjoy your time here.
