red rattler party train

The train departs from Southern Cross Station at approximately 6.45pm and travels at a leisurely speed to the north, approximately 80 minutes travelling time. The train ride in itself is a highlight, with the freedom to move around amongst the older style, seating carriages. Throughout the ride drinks and savouries are served by our friendly and formally attired staff and our disc jockey provides the entertainment.

At our country destination we disembark and take the short stroll to The Railway Hotel where the welcome is very warm and a sit down dinner with drinks is provided. Following a stay of nearly 2 hours it's back to the train for the return to Melbourne. It's a much livelier affair on this leg and the dj and his dance carriage are very popular. Arrival into Southern Cross Station is around 12.00am.

The train operates on a charter basis for private groups. An indicative per person cost (fully inclusive of transport, music, food and drink on the train and at the hotel and gst) is $175, based on a minimum of 150 people. Smaller groups can be catered for but the per person cost would increase.
