A unique celebration of British built locomotives

Vintage Rail Travel/707 Operations is celebrating the best of British locomotives built for the Victorian Railways with their upcoming 'Best of British Suburban Rail Tour' on Sunday 16th July 2017. Tickets are now on sale!

This unique, family-friendly suburban tour will see guests depart 707 Operations Newport Depot in Newport at 12.10pm onboard an English Electric diesel locomotive F208 and steam locomotive R707.

This is the first mainline visit of F208 since 1999 and a rare opportunity to visit the industrial parts of western and inner Melbourne's rail network.

During the afternoon, you will get to experience Vintage Rail Travel/707 Operations' fleet of saloon and compartment carriages and visit locations which are not usually accessible to the public.

The train is licensed and offers a full bar service with a selection of ales, wine, sparkling and mixed spirits, as well as an onboard cafe with espresso coffee and snacks available.

Don't miss this heritage rail tour experience this winter! Tickets are now on sale through TryBooking and are priced from $15pp.
