Our Trains

During our development and restoration work on "Como Gardens", it was decided that a railway track and train station would be a most suitable addition to the activities in hand, where the 650 meters of track would flank and not impose on the 6 acres of formal gardens, traverse over three creek trestle bridges, through an extended laburnum arch then back to the "Como Gardens" station, on a 7 1/4" track.

While it was essential that steam power be used for propulsion, we also needed a diesel for entertaining small groups and in addition, each engine needed to be capable of carrying five carriages and a total of 30 passengers. The live steamer more than qualifies with estimates on its capacity to pull 7-8 tonnes.

This facet of the visits to "Como Gardens" is a great success, popular to old and young alike and during our Open Garden weekends, we run them both in tandem.
