Victorian Goldfields Railway Running Days - Victorian Goldfields Railway

Castlemaine 3450
Victorian Goldfields Railway in Castlemaine and Maldon in Central Victoria
Features: Brodadgauge Diesel Steam
Enjoy a day out or treat yourself and travel in our elegant first class carriages as you travel through the central Victorian Goldfields.

Travel Suggestion... To enjoy a great day out, the 11.45 from Castlemaine gives you 2 hours to have lunch in one of the cafes or pubs and explore the lovely little goldfields town of Maldon before returning to Castlemaine in the late afternoon.

Summer Running Policy

On days declared by the Country Fire Authority (CFA) to be a Total Fire Ban (TFB) with a rating of extreme or code red no scheduled VGR trains will run. VGR trains may run on a TFB if the CFA rating is severe or less-further information will be posted on the VGR website and Facebook page on these days.

The VGR may decide to cancel services on any day if we regard weather conditions to be unsuitable to run trains - any cancellations will be posted on our website and facebook page.

At any time during the summer and autumn period we may substitute diesel locomotives for steam if we regard weather conditions to be unsuitable for the operation of steam engines. Due to the unfavourable weather conditions of central Victoria during summer we have announced that all advertised trains will run with diesel locomotives from 1 Dec 2016 to at least 28 Feb 2017.

What are my Travel Options?

From Maldon We leave Maldon at 10.30am and 2.30 pm.
*The 10.30am train spends 30 minutes at Castlemaine to turn the engine and returns you to Maldon at 12.30pm. Or you may choose to stay on in Castlemaine for the afternoon and catch the later 3.45 pm train back to Maldon arriving at 4.30pm.
*The 2.30pm train also gives half an hour at Castlemaine and returns you to Maldon at 4.30 pm

From Castlemaine We leave Castlemaine at 11.45 am.
*You have 2 hours to explore Maldon and have lunch and we return you to Castlemaine by 3.30pm.
*VGR trains connect with V/Line fast trains to and from Melbourne at Castlemaine station. View V/line timetables
*Castlemaine is less than 1 1/2 hours from Melbourne by road up the Calder Freeway.

Travel Suggestion... To enjoy a great day out, drive or catch the V/line train to Castlemaine to connect with our late morning (11.45am) train to Maldon where you have 2 hours to enjoy a leisurely lunch in one of the cafes or pubs and explore the lovely little goldfields town. Then relax on the 2.30pm departure from Maldon, maybe enjoying a drink from the bar in first class, before arriving back at Castlemaine in the mid afternoon (3.30pm) connecting with V/line services.
