The name TRAX is synonymous with the railway tracks running along Kent Street outside her business, which are still used to shunt locomotives to and from Maryborough's Downer EDI Rail. Two walls inside the café are painted with murals; one a railway track and the other a locomotive, which appears to be coming out of the wall towards you.
Tables and chairs are set in and outside the café along with two seatings set up in the bay windows of the café, which give a lovely feeling of private dining.
