You will need to print your tickets or have them available for viewing on a digital device. Please arrive 15 minutes earlier than your departure time, but do not enter the platform until Melbourne passengers have disembarked. This is in order to prevent overcrowding of the passenger platform.
There are buses available free of charge to transfer one-way travel customers. Bookings are essential, book your (free) tickets to secure your place.
2. ROYAL TRAIN SHUTTLE
More information can be seen here.
This will be held on 10th August from 3.15 pm to 5.45 pm at Seymour Railway Station, Dowling St, near Dowling Ave, Seymour.
This will be a really special vintage train shuttle running between Seymour and Murchison East. The train will have the recently restored Royal carriages, State Carriage 4 and 5. There will also be the lovely Yarra and Spirit of Progress 1937 Dining Carriage to see.
Once again, the countryside will be breathtaking while looking at the viewing platforms on State Carriage 4 and Yarra.
Adults - $35
Children (5-16 years) - $15
Children (Under 5 years) - Free
Family (2adults, 2 children) - $85.
This will be a return shuttle train which will run to Murchison East and stable there, prior to its return to Seymour. It is one that cannot be boarded at Murchison East and is only, therefore, boarding and returning to Seymour.
The State Carriages will be open for you to explore. There will be no reserved seating and you can sit anywhere on the train where allowed.

3. YOU DRIVE A TRAIN
You can find out information at their Facebook page.
This will be held on Sunday 18th August from 10.00 am to 3.30 pm at Mornington Tourist Railway Station, Mornington.
If you are looking for a different idea as a present, here is the one! Often we struggle to find that something special and unique - but have you ever wanted to drive a locomotive? If you answered yes to any of the above, this is the ideal gift as a present. After being so popular previously, it is once again back by popular demand! One lucky recipient will get a chance to drive one of these historic locomotives.
You can choose either,
The 1941 vintage K163 steam locomotive, which weighs in at over 100 tons
The 1968 heritage 950 horsepower diesel-electric locomotive.
Just for a change of scenery and for something a little different, it has been arranged for this event to be held at the Mornington Station.
Steam: $120 each.
Diesel: $90 each.
This fabulous experience will include approximately 2km of driving from Mornington and return. During this time you will be able to take photos in the driver's seat and with the crew at the conclusion. The participant will receive a certificate at the completion of the experience.
