Galston Valley Railway

If you have little ones who love trains like I do, then a visit to the Galston Valley Railway is a must. The railway is run by the Hornsby Model Engineers and is located at 29 Mid Dural Rd, Galston.

The railway is open to the public on the second Sunday of each month and miniature train rides run from 10am to 3pm. Children and big kids at heart are able to enjoy a ride on one of the many miniature trains - steam or diesel. A firm favourite of ours was definitely taking a ride on the steam train.

The trains run through the lovely surrounding bush landscape and there is plenty to look at on your ride(s) around. Have a chat to the lovely engineers working with the trains, they are a wealth of information and are happy to answer any of your questions.

Entry tickets are $10 per adult, which includes one train ride. Children accompanied by an adult are free. Individual rides are $2.50 per person. The railway is a non-profit organisation and all of the money goes back into keeping this wonderful family activity alive for our enjoyment.

There are picnic tables and barbeques available for use. There is also a sausage sandwich stall available for purchase between 12noon and 1:30pm. A small canteen sells tea/coffee, cold drinks and icecreams.

There is also a model railway where you can chat to train enthusiasts and watch their delightful trains in action.

Some special notes:

Due to safety regulations all train passengers must wear fully enclosed shoes or risk not being permitted to ride.

There are also a number of stairs so please keep this in mind when you visit.

The railway was also very busy on the day we visited. To maximise your visit I recommend arriving at opening time to ensure you can enjoy a full day at this hidden gem.

It really is a fun day out for the whole family.
