The popular Platform No.1 Cafe offers a dine in experience before or after your rail journey, or you can buy take away treats to enjoy on board. The gift shop offers a selection of local goodies as well as speciality giftware and souvenirs. The VIP Shared booth experience offers a unique way to explore the Mary Valley. Sit back and relax as you begin your 40km nostalgic rail journey through one of the most beautiful parts of Queensland. Discover the romance of the railway through the scenic Mary Valley. The journey crosses the Mary River as you travel around an abundance of curves, over bridges, and numerous gentle hills. The line wanders away from the river and into the valleys of some of its main tributaries including the Yabba, Kandanga and Amamoor Creeks, and passes through the small township of Dagun. The quaint community of Amamoor is a delightful historic town. Here you can watch the fascinating process of the turning of the engine on the turntable. The VIP shared booth journey includes a local cheese plate, a personal carriage host providing commentary. Additionally, passengers can select a lunch item from the 'Set Menu' and a beverage of their choice.
