Due to the heritage nature of the train, it is not possible to board with a wheelchair or similar device. However, we will be pleased to convey mobility-restricted passengers whenever possible provided they can move to their reserved seats with the help of an able-bodied carer. Regrettably, our volunteer staff are unable to assist in helping move such persons. The wheelchair or mobility device will need to be folded by the carer and either stored at the end of the carriage or in the guard's van. Some platforms are shorter or lower than normal which may necessitate walking through several carriages. Motorised scooters, etc., are not able to be conveyed at any time.

It is a condition of travel on all our tours that you have a reasonable level of fitness and a good level of mobility. We require all passengers to be capable of self-care during the tour, should you require assistance it remains your responsibility to supply a carer.

Timetable and Altering Services

LVR makes every endeavour 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.

Times shown on brochures are subject to the approval of the relevant authorities and could differ on the day. Correct times will be advertised on your tickets or by special email/mail. Refunds will not be given for changes of destination or last-minute variations to the timetable caused by events outside of our control.


If you require any assistance in an emergency, call a member of staff first. In the unlikely event of an emergency, please remain seated, stay calm and await instructions from staff or emergency personnel. We will help you exit the train swiftly and safely if evacuation is necessary.

Connecting Services

LVR cannot guarantee connections with other network carriers including NSW TrainLink Intercity or Regional Services, Sydney Trains, Journey Beyond and/or domestic and international airlines, LVR does not take any responsibility for alterations to the timetables of other transport operators.


We can also ask the police to remove intoxicated passengers from services who fail to comply with our House Policy.
