About this event

Warwick to Wallangarra

Depart Warwick Station at 08:00am for a leisurely day on the heritage train to Wallangarra, arriving at 12:10pm. This train will be hauled by our heritage listed diesel locomotive. This 40 ton locomotive is Queensland built in 1966.

Optional fully catered two course restaurant lunch $30.00 on Wallangarra Railway Station RECOMMENDED!. See ticket options.

IMPORTANT: If you do not order a meal with your ticket the railway cafe at Wallangarra is not providing any other meals for train travellers. You can bring your lunch if you prefer.

Ticketing options available: one way, lunch, winery tours, see details when purchasing tickets.

After easing into the uphill sections between Warwick (1,492ft), and Silverwood (1,913ft), we leave civilisation and wind up past sandstone ruins of Spring and Mineral Creek bridges before a short stop to check the locomotive before passing through the two tunnels on the line.

After this brief pause, it’s time to enjoy the spectacular views as we climb the Silverwood range to Dalveen where we pass The Summit (3,035ft), the highest QR station. Since leaving Warwick, we have risen 1,543 feet in the space of 32 miles. After passing The Summit we coast down into Stanthorpe for a 30 minute stop.

We continue from here at 10:45am, descending into granite country as we make our way to the Queensland - New South Wales Border. After passing Lyra (2,305ft), we start the 577 feet climb into Wallangarra (2,882ft), where we will make our stop at 12:10pm for lunch.

If relevant… Train departure from Wallangarra is at 1.45pm for a leisurely heritage train trip back to Stanthorpe, arriving at 3.00pm. We will depart here at 3.30pm to make our way back down the range with a setting sun before we arrive back in Warwick at 6.00pm.

Please note… 

Please plan to arrive at the Warwick Railway Station, Brosnan Cres, Warwick at least 30 minutes before departure.

We make every endeavour to ensure that tours operate as advertised. Unfortunately, this may not always be possible owing to unforeseen circumstances such as total fire bans or mechanical failures. In such events we reserve the right to make whatever changes are necessary, without compensation. However, any changes made will only be after we have exhausted all reasonable efforts to provide the tour as advertised. 

Where steam is unavailable, we will replace it with the Heritage Diesel Locomotive
