Please be aware that we continue to be guided by the health advice of the Victorian Government and have adopted a set of safety measures to keep you, our staff, and volunteers safe.
You must tell us about all passengers in your party, including children under 4, so we can ensure we have sufficient space in our carriages to safely accommodate you. Additionally, in preparation for safety operations of the sitting on sills experience, you will be asked to verify the age of each travelling child, both when booking tickets online and on the day of travel when checking in at the Booking Office. Your child’s Date of Birth will help us to manage passenger requirements in order to determine if they are permitted to sit on our carriage sills. Any additional passengers that are not part of your booking, including children under 4 years of age, may be refused travel due to their presence exceeding Government regulations for passenger numbers.


Please follow instructions from our friendly platform staff who are there for your safety and the wellbeing of all passengers.

  • Carriage Allocation System
    There will be a carriage allocation system and you will be notified on arrival of your allocation. Kindly ensure that you sit in the same carriage on the return journey. If you are travelling with someone else and they have booked their tickets separately, please indicate this in the "Notes" field in your online booking. We will do our best to seat you together.
  • Arriving on Time
    Guests are required to check-in at the booking office 60-minutes before the departure of their booked train. Check-in at the booking office closes 30-minutes before the train departs. Please note, it is your responsibility to arrive at the station on time. The train cannot be held and will depart at the scheduled time.

Whilst we welcome children in our heritage dining carriages, we can only accommodate children aged 5 years and above.   As a result, babies, toddlers and young ones under five years of age, cannot travel in our dining carriages.  These age restrictions have been carefully considered in the interests of health and safety.
