Optional Extras

The Transport Heritage Expo kicks off with the Great Train Race! Be part of this awesome and unique experience as two steam trains race from Central, through Sydney's inner-west to Strathfield and return. Travel behind your choice of steam locomotive 3526 (aka 'the Nanny'), or the Southern Hemisphere's largest operating steam locomotive 6029 (aka 'the Garratt'). SOLD OUT!

Take a steam train ride aboard a NSW railways heritage carriage from the 1930s hauled by recently restored steam locomotive 3526 ('the Nanny') or Australia's most powerful operating steam locomotive 6029 ('the Garratt') from Central to Hurstville and return. A great experience for the whole family!

For a truly nostalgic experience, take a ride aboard Sydney's vintage electric set 'F1'. This three-car train is part of 883 single deck steel carriages that once formed the backbone of the Sydney suburban fleet from 1926 until the early 1990s.

Take a ride aboard these charming CPH Railmotors from the 1920s. Known as ‘Tin Hares’, this vintage diesel train will be performing round trips of the Sydney Metropolitan Freights lines through Chullora & Enfield over all three days. This is a rare opportunity to see the hidden sights of the Sydney freight lines not normally traversed by passenger trains. SOLD OUT!

The Sydney Bus Museum will be operating a fleet of vintage double-decker buses for a 20-minute round trip of the Sydney CBD.
