Red Cliffs Historical Steam Railway
Experience one of the great little train rides in Australia.
The Red Cliffs Historical Steam Railway was formed in 1994 under the auspices of the Red Cliffs Rotary Club to operate the restored Kerr Stuart 0-4-2T steam locomotive named 'Lukee' B/N 742/1901, that formerly operated between Red Cliffs railway station and the Red Cliffs pumping station. A 1.6 kilometre section of the former 1600 millimetre gauge Red Cliffs. Morkalla branch line has been converted to 610 millimetre gauge for tourist train operation.
In 2004 Red Cliffs Historical Railway purchased an EM Baldwin diesel locomotive which after extensive renovation was commissioned in June 2005. Named 'Harry' the Locomotive regularly shares running days with 'Lukee' and gives the Railway the flexibility of one off specials.
Red Cliffs Historical Steam Railway (RCHSR) was established in 1992 by a group of people interested in preserving and operating the steam locomotive that once hauled coal and briquettes from the Red Cliffs railway siding to the State Rivers and Water Supply Commission pumping station on the Murray River.
Ride on the a 1.5 km narrow gauge railway re-built on part of the former Victorian Railways branch line from Red Cliffs to Morkalla. The principle attraction is the Kerr Stuart steam locomotive “Lukee” built in 1901 and restored to operating condition after being in static preservation in Red Cliffs since 1953.
