Visit the Valley Heights Rail Museum under COVIDSafe conditions

Museum entry gates

Under our COVIDSafe plan, numbers are limited, and online bookings are essential.

With 120 year old steam locomotive 'Stevo' in the lead* or our 1960s vintage diesel X206, you will again be transported back to a bygone era, in the padded comfort of an 1890 timber carriage. View the model rail and other exhibits of the steam era in the Blue Mountains.
* Steam train operation is subject to logistical factors (fire ban or high fire risk, crew or locomotive availability, track failure or other reasons), therefore diesel operated rides with a heritage carriage may run in place.

Bookings are essential, with visitor numbers strictly limited in each session at 10:00 and 13:00.

Next planned open days:

  • Sunday 14 November 2021
  • Sunday 28 November 2021

These open days have been cancelled due to the COVID lockdown of the Greater Sydney region:
