The ARHSQD Sunshine Express are again operating our annual Steam Train Trips from Brisbane to Toowoomba for the Carnival of Flowers on the 21st & 22nd September 2019. We will again be offering locals in the Toowoomba area the opportunity to travel from the Historical Toowoomba Railway Station down the range to the Helidon Station travelling on board a Steam Locomotive service in historic Queensland Railway Carriages.
The trip will pass through the picturesque Spring Bluff Station which is normally a delight this time of year before terminating at Helidon Station where a Coach service awaits to return passengers to the Toowoomba Station.
This short trip makes a great outing for Families with Children letting them experience train travel from a bygone era. On board the train our Refreshment Car will be serving drinks and snacks and passengers are invited to walk between the different wooden carriages to experience the different types of rolling stock that once serviced the extensive passenger rail network in Queensland.
There is also the option of experiencing a completely different aspect to rail travel on the open verandas situated at each end of many of the carriages. Children are welcome to spend time on these verandas when accompanied by an Adult.
All passengers traveling on board have allocated seats ensuring that families or parties travelling together will be seated together.
