Nothing beats the nostalgic and almost-forgotten sensation of travelling aboard an express passenger train, racing across the hills and valleys of the countryside, with the smell of burning coal and steam whiffing past the open windows, as the steam locomotive works its way along the everlasting track. Or the sensation of travelling away on a hidden country branchline aboard a classic ‘Tin Hare’ railmotor, the diesel engines rumbling away underneath your feet, with the windows open and the fresh country breeze circulating aboard.

Lachlan Valley Railway is a non-profit, railway preservation society based in the NSW Central Western town of Cowra. We are a passionate and dedicated society devoted to the preservation and operation of various examples of New South Wales Government Railway trains, ranging from our operational steam and diesel locomotives, to our fleet of heritage passenger railway carriages, and our diesel ‘Tin Hare’ CPH railmotors.

Lachlan Valley Railway operate a wide variety of tours on the mainline, ranging from local shuttles in many regional centres of NSW, to long and adventurous day or weekend steam train tours. Our trains are widely available for charter as well, and we can accommodate most requirements as well as provide trains to special local events at a great price.

In addition, our trains are based at the historic Cowra Roundhouse Depot and Museum, the only existing railway roundhouse depot in NSW where steam locomotives are still lit up for a day’s operation! The museum is open on most days of the week and, by arrangement, a guide is on hand to take visitors on a tour around the depot.

Our upcoming tours can be found on the Ride our Trains page.

Thank you for visiting, and we hope to see you aboard soon.
