As part of the annual Steam Train Trip from Brisbane to Toowoomba for the Carnival of Flowers Sunshine Express offers locals in the Toowoomba area the opportunity to travel from the Historical Toowoomba Railway Station down the range to the Helidon Station travelling onboard 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. Onboard 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 rollingstock 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 onboard have allocated seats ensuring that families or parties travelling together will be seated together.
We would love to see you onboard.
