LVR makes every endeavor to ensure that our tours operate as advertised. Unfortunately, this may not always be possible owing to circumstances such as network operational issues, urgent track work, total fire bans or mechanical issues owing to the age of the heritage rollingstock. In such events, we reserve the right to make whatever changes are necessary without notice. However, any changes made will only be after we have made all reasonable efforts to provide the tour as advertised.
