Event Information

Join us for a unique 80-minute tour where passenger trains don’t normally go! Usually hidden from public view, this tour presents a rare opportunity to traverse Sydney’s freight-only rail network, and see what goes into keeping Australia’s largest city moving behind the scenes.

Starting at Central, our train will run to Regents Park via Lidcombe, where we will divert onto the Sydney Freight Network at Sefton Park Junction. Continuing to Chullora, we will pass the Sydney Freight Terminal and the Chullora Industrial Sidings, before heading past Enfield Marshalling Yard and the NSW Ports Enfield Intermodal Logistics Centre.

Then on to Meeks Road Junction, home of the XPT Service Centre, where we part ways with the freight line to Port Botany and rejoin the passenger network at Sydenham. We finish with a dash through Southern Sydney back to Central, past the new construction at the Marrickville Sydney Metro Trains Facility.
